Demolition turned Delight

The environmentally-minded designers at Barcelona firm Capella Garcia Arquitectura take the idea of “green living” to heart. Their latest project is a makeover of an unsightly building demolition.
The progress at Green Side Wall
Completed in March, the “Green Side-Wall,” promoted by the Barcelona City Council, is a foray into what the firm has christened “vegitecture,” or a vertical garden with emphasis on the structure's original architecture.

The main material responsible for bringing a breath of fresh air to the residential area: 
Plants—oxygen-producing, living green that cascades down the once plain wall.

What if all buildings of the future look like this?

Great post, Jodi! I enjoyed reading about the various hydrangeas. I have several but they can be tempermental at times. It's so nice to hear they can handle the sun. Now I understand better why we have blooms on one plant and not on others we pruned at the wrong time! Can't thank you enough!Mumbai Flowers
