The Iconic Greenhouse project resulted from Leeser’s winning proposal in an invited competition for production based greenhouse in Abu Dhabi, UAE. 

The greenhouse is sited in the extreme desert climate and challenges the difficult task of housing three separate biomes under one roof. 

The internal climates, drastically different than the
local conditions, are contained within an ETFE membrane.The use of the polymer Ethylene tetraflouroethylene (ETFE) across the enclosure and interior of the building
has allowed us to achieve maximum efficiency and minimum cost, while gaining flexibility in form and
transparency.
