    1. It was originally built for that purpose. I don't know why they no longer use the structure for plants.

    1. Oh, and I keep forgetting to comment on your new embroidered emblem - it is lovely! The spider web in the corner is especially timely - love it! :)

  5. Someone is missing a fabulous opportunity. Greenery would add to the experience of the building and complement all those metal edges.

    1. There are lots of beautiful plants outside. It's used for art exhibits now.

  6. I had to look up the history: originally built to display flora and fauna from the Philippines. Shouldn't they honor the original purpose of the structure? At least the flora part.

  7. The magnificent structure is a missed opportunity. If only they hired you, it would become a spectacular greenhouse, filled with amazing plants.
