The Jewel Box Greenhouse

Architects come from all over the world to study this art deco greenhouse.

It was designed by city engineer William C. E. Becker and Robert Paulus Construction Co. was the contractor.

With its unconventional, cantilevered, vertical glass walls rising majestically 50 feet high, the Jewel Box opened in 1936 to national acclaim.
