Art: Vertical Gardens by Patrick Blanc

Aug 10th, 2008 by admin | 1

Several weeks ago my brother told me about the artist/botanist Patrick Blanc who designs so-called Vertical Gardens, which are – as the name already indicates – gardens that grow vertically on walls. And I immediately remembered that I had already seen one of them myself. It was at the outside wall of the CaixaForum museum in Madrid last New Year’s Eve (to be seen on the photo below).

By now there are dozens of these interesting and spectacular – however only decorative – gardens all over the world. You can get more information and pictures on Patrick Blanc’s website at www.verticalgardenpatrickblanc.com.
