9780747812463: Glasshouses (Shire Library)

The orangeries and glasshouses that stand in the gardens of many stately homes help to tell a three-century story of garden fashion. They reflect both the architectural and social trends of their time, but above all show an increasing ability to tailor the buildings to the needs of the plants within. Starting with the Restoration fashion for cultivating pineapples, oranges and bananas within palatial orangeries, Fiona Grant then explains the development of glasshouses through the eighteenth century into the heyday of diversification and specialisation that charaterized the Victorian period, to the eventual decline of great glasshouses after the First World War. The role of the glasshouse as a display of status and of an interest in botany, technology and architecture is explored, and the book is colorfully illustrated throughout.

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since the early seventeenth century, when the cultivation of exotic plants and fruit became fashionable in northern Europe, glasshouses have offered an artificial climate in which they could flourish. At first these structures were within reach only of the very richest, and growing one s own oranges, orchids, pineapples or bananas was a sign of great wealth; but by the mid-nineteenth century manufacturers emerged to cater for a growing middle-class market. Glasshouses became increasingly sophisticated, with different types tailored to house specific crops, and manufacturers competing with one another by developing their own house styles, leading to a wealth of designs endlessly fascinating to the garden or architectural historian. In Glasshouses, Fiona Grant provides an illustrated introduction to the subject, including the twentieth century decline and recent attempts at restoration.
