Royal Greenhouses Laeken Belgium

2010-2018

Designed by architect Balat (Victor Horta’s teacher) the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken are some of Brussels’ most remarkable monuments. They were built between 1874 and 1895 and commissoned by King Leopold II. The highly impressive greenhouses with their ironwork frames are home to a charming range of flora and many rare species. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). The complex can only be visited during a three-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom. Karin Borghouts is photographing in the Royal Greenhouses since 2010. A guide (BAI publishers) in 4 languages is published as well as many postcards, posters etc.
