A Celebration of Landscape Design
and Botanical Promotion
Agriculture, floriculture and horticulture all came together at the 1915 Panama California Exposition. The Botanical Building, as envisioned by floriculturist A. D. Robinson, designed by Carleton Winslow, was the central feature of the "Garden Fair." An extensive showcase of exotic horticulture, agricultural exhibits and displays of "floral wealth" came from the combined efforts of landscape architect Paul Thiene, and Parks Superintendent John Morley, which signaled the future of botanical commerce in San Diego.
