Cac­tus Tourism: Desert City, Madrid

Sharp - - GUIDE -

Opened this sum­mer, the sprawl­ing Ja­cobo Gar­cía-germán-de­signed com­plex boasts five botan­i­cal gar­dens that dis­play cacti as they’re found in dif­fer­ent re­gions. One recre­ates the nat­u­ral Ari­zo­nan land­scape; an­other, Si­cil­ian gar­den-style ar­range­ments. A Mies van der Rohe-es­que glass pavil­ion presents min­i­mal­ist in­door com­po­si­tions ready to of­fer in­spi­ra­tion for your own mod so­lar­ium. Way bet­ter than ac­tu­ally go­ing to the desert.
