The Orangery . . My partner's allotment consists of several of these blue troughs. Last year the allotment did well, but this year it has suffered with severe weather (scorching heat) and high winds. In addition many plants were dug up by a cat. This was built to offer some protection, and to experiment using technic (which I've never really built with before). An overall view of the orangery. Designed to protect the plants against cats and provide a relative frequent supply of water the building is composed mostly of technic parts to ensure that it is flexible but rigid. It is also very light and can be lifted with a single finger and moved to another trough if needed. My partner has a section of the garden dedicated to an allotment. Last year we had a really good season, but this year we have had several problems, most notably a cat. This has been built to protect some of the more delicate plants until they are more established. Looking down one of the barrels the pointed connections can be seen in the centre. Whilst these are crucial to holding the building together the horn like shapes at the bottom of the joints are used to ensure rainwater can run off. Inspired by Victorian wrought iron structures, like the Crystal Palace, the Orangery has been designed to ensure it can survive a lifetime outdoors. Using mostly technic parts this gives the building a rigid but flexible net like structure, offering maximum protection against the wind. It is also very light, and can be lifted with one hand, like a lid so it can be moved to replant if necessary. Each part of the building has been carefully designed. The ridges on this parts are designed to offer the building flexibility (as we live in a very windy area), but also to collect raindrops. When the wind blows the drops fall onto the plants beneath, offering a frequent source of water
