Surrounded by beauty in the Botanic Gardens
The roof of the classrooms of the Amenity College of Horticulture, located within the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin, is best viewed from the top of the number 19 bus.
College director Dr Paul Cusack smiles as he imparts this gem of wisdom. The roof is covered with a carpet of sedums, which flower in summer. Designed by architect Ciaran O'Connor, who is also responsible for the new library and herbarium, the tiny college rejoices in wood and glass.
