Phipps Conservatory

Joint Event with HBS Club

Phipps Executive Director, Richard V. Piacentini, will describe Phipps’ newly begun expansion project: The Center for Sustainable Landscapes (the “Greenest Building in the World”) and will discuss some of the challenges involved in this $22 million project. The tour of the Conservatory will include the new Tropical Forest, and a preview of The Fall Flower Show only two days before the public opening! This is a private event just for our group. Phipps will be closed to the public. (This increases our costs a bit, so note that we have to nudge up the price to break even.)
