Slightly obsessed with green walls, also known as living walls or vertical gardens.

The concept of living walls dates back to 600 BC with the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

They were described as a remarkable feat of engineering with a series of tiered terraces resting upon cube-shaped pillars, which in turn were filled with trees and lush foliage.

Modern day vertical landscapes in terms of modular green walls seem to be on the rise from professionally installed and maintained systems to off the shelf kits or even youtube homemade ones.

They add life and art to the interiors and exteriors of building envelopes, providing architects, designers and property owners with new creative possibilities while championing sustainability.
