The Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil are located at the southern most border of the Bois du Boulogne in the 16th arrondisement of Paris. Orginally built for Louis XV, the garden is now one of four parts of a network of greenhouse gardens throughout Paris. As the story of progress goes - - the architectural value of the 5 hothouses that hold the centerpiece of the collection, are being weighed against the expansion of the Roland-Garros complex. Will the works of architectual designer Jean-Camille Formigé and the decorative busts by A. Rodin survive the desire for growth.
