Although not finished, the plans of the Greenhouse were quite innovative with the intention to install an automatic watering system and venting system, along with more plant beds to innovate the idea of a standard greenhouse. The black grate on the back was meant to store water that would be heated by the sun. The heat would then be released in the evening to maintain the same temperature throughout the day. The stack ventilation allows heat to rise then the catchers rotate to optimize ventilation. These rotating catchers make the Greenhouse the only dynamic structure in Poly Canyon.
