DES MOINES – BOTANICAL GARDENS

DES MOINES – BOTANICAL GARDENS

Des Moines Botanical Gardens, formerly known as Des Moines Botanical Centre underwent a dynamic transformation of its facility for a new and improved look. Led by architect Mike Simonson, the process of reimagining the Des Moines Botanical Garden began with the lobby entrance to set the tone and reputation for all things cutting-edge to come. To spruce up the entrance, GSky has designed a VERSA WALL® to be the focal point of the lobby that will greet visitors with fresh air, and create an inviting place for them to enjoy. This VERSA WALL® will be Des Moines’ first living wall and is truly a stunning feature that would sure to take one’s breath away.
