In Renaissance gardens, greenhouses appeared to protect plants, particularly rare species and often in the form of collections. The orangeries, such as that of Versailles, in addition to keeping certain species, are also places of socialization for giving parties.

The Green Pavilion takes up these two functions, the protection of the plants presented there and the socialization with the table in the center to make feasts there; bread and wine, then vegetables and perhaps the fruits that will be grown there.

All transparent, it shows what is protected there as those who celebrate there.

In the evening, a few candles will transform it, inside, into a magical place and, outside, into a lantern.
