Vertically green

A garden doesn't always need the ground.

Vertical gardens are a completely unexpected way to bring nature into our concrete environments. The walls of lush green are not only beautiful and iconic to look at, they are also very practical. Plants on vertical walls naturally create a great cooling system for the building by keeping their surface temperature no greater than 4°C to 5°C. They can also play a role in air filtration and provide a natural way to improve air quality within the building. Pioneered by French botanist Patrick Blanc, the vertical garden challenges our perception of dimensional solutions and demands that we continuously ask ourselves, why not?
