Patrick Blanc, Vertical Garden interview in Paris

 

 

Editor's Note from Michelle Gregg, ATH Senior Editor: Just imagine! The future could be cities filled with lush green life and colorful beauty, rather than just concrete jungles that sap our health. Flora growing up city building walls would provide a partial solution to air pollution, and the water used is recycled again and again, much like a water fountain. This is an amazing and innovative idea worth exploring from a green perspective. It doesn't seem a difficult task to see these wall gardens being created in the future from entirely "green" building products. Enjoy this one!

Welcome to Paris, where an entire building is pulsing with lush green life and beauty.

Patrick Blanc is a groundbreaking botanist and designer that creates magical gardens out of building exteriors in urban areas.

See the ingenious wall system that recycles the water in a hydroponic loop.

Imagine bringing walls of green life to our cities everywhere...

This is such a unique post that truly gives a positive definition for the term "wall flower." I can envision tomatoes growing down the side of a building. I love all the greenery.
