Green Design – Vertical Gardens and Forests

Green Design – Vertical Gardens and Forests

The use of plants and trees to balance out urban landscapes is not a new thing.  Green design is centuries old.  However when done well it can benefit the residents of that city, the wild life and even help to control the rising temperatures and air pollution. 

Contemporary green design is visible in many places. From the vertical gardens in Mexico city to Bosco Verticale the vertical forest in Milan.  The EmQuartier mall in Bangkok or Greenroofs in Chicago.  Acros Fukuoka in Fukuoka city, Japan or Park Royal on Pickering in Singapore.   The presence of trees and plants in urban areas makes a positive impact on the overall ambience.

Various studies have shown that in a work place plants reduce stress, anxiety and improves productivity.
