Green things

Maybe the Hobbits were on to something? Using Green roofs is no new concept but is getting back "in fashion". Reducing thermal energy to be realised from the building, a low paesagistic impact, an extra garden space..

Yep! Save water!

Water from the shower is re-used to irrigate the plants. Here shown in a very clear way, but why isn't this concept always used?

This is the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna. It almost makes you feel childlike wanting to run around and explore.

Why not have a vertical garden in cases where we don't have space horizontally?

This is in my opinion the most beautiful Green wall I've ever seen! Herzog & De Meuron are architectural gurus and whoever they hired as a landscape designer here, is a genious!
