The glasshouse of Phipps Conservatory at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh was constructed in 1893, and showcases one of the most beautiful and diverse collections of green life in the country.  And the newly completed Center for Sustainable Landscapes here on the Phipps Campus showcases just about every form of sustainable design you can think of, and is considered one of the greenest buildings and landscapes in the world.
