Cactus Tourism: Desert City, Madrid
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.
