Ancient Romans devised the first greenhouse prototype using sheets of mica with dung heating systems to grow a year-round supply of cucumbers. As European powers expanded their trading routes, glasshouses - often called orangeries because they were designed to grow citrus fruits from tropical climates - began to pop up across Western Europe. How will greenhouses evolve to grow a range of crops in extreme climate conditions, adapt to energy generation and efficiency challenges, conserve water, and reduce food waste?
