The 植物艺术画廊 is housed within the second refurbished conserved building, 疾驰的房子没有. 7 (Inverturret), which was built in 1906. The gallery highlights the vital role that art plays in the scientific documentation of plants in Singapore and the region, as well as how art can inspire renewed appreciation of the natural world around us. This will be Singapore’s first permanent display of botanical art, where visitors will be able to see a selection of the 新加坡植物园’ collection that includes more than 2,000年植物绘画, 还有数百张草图, 线条图和照片.
Inspired by the distinctive parts of trees found within the Gardens, this is a modern interpretation of the timeless experience of climbing and playing in trees. 孩子们 can swing, slide and climb on structures resembling the aerial roots of the Weeping Fig (热带榕属植物benjamina), scramble over the warty surface of a giant Cempedak (面包果整数) or roll and hop around the pod and seeds of a Saga tree (Adenanthera pavonina). These adaptive components will help introduce children to nature through play.
