Description - Vertical Gardens: Bringing the City to Life by Anna Lambertini

Bringing nature into urban environments has always been a challenge for metropolitan areas. One of the most spectacular solutions to this problem is the vertical garden. These gardens are more than just an unusual decoration attached to a wall - they are a means of bringing life and greenery to a bleak courtyard, a grey city street, or a cold modern building. "Vertical Gardens" is the first publication to present a collection of the most important examples of this emerging trend.
