Description: Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardens, opened in October of 2000, consists of an 18,400-square foot facility that includes a 8,000-sq. ft. glass conservatory filled with butterflies, moths and tropical vegetation. We commemorated our new expansion in a Grand Opening ceremony June 26, 2004. The sun shines through the glass walls and heats up the conservatory to an 80-degree tropical-like environment all year round. The heart-shaped pond with Japanese koi graces the center of the conservatory. The sound of the waterfall, peaceful music and hundreds of butterflies fluttering freely through the air creates a tranquil and serene atmosphere. It has become a sought-after romantic place for weddings, for which we can provide a justice of the peace. Visits anytime throughout the year are delightful. It’s truly amazing inside, for no matter how many people are enjoying the conservatory, it’s still a peaceful sanctuary for all. Enter through the main entrance into our plant-filled atrium.

Description: 

World renowned architect, Frank Gehry, is widely considered to be one of the world’s most significant and influential contributors to contemporary art and architecture. Frank Gehry’s mystifying use of forms, shapes, and building materials have succeeded in transforming commercial, residential, and educational buildings into an enticing wayfarer retreats. Built on the footprint of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s historic Building 20, the Ray and Maria Stata Center was designed to provide its occupants with an adaptable environment where students and teachers alike could modify their work space however they please. In addition to its adaptable environment, the Stata Center also consists of large collaborative spaces where people of different disciplines can interact and share their experiences. It’s whimsical shapes and mind boggling building materials leave its passers-by in awe by the sheer perplexity of the design.
