Patrick Blancs Work for Paris Design Week
Patrick Blancs vertical gardens have set the pace for a fast-growing field of interest. This eccentric designer is the modern innovator of the green wall, he popularized the idea of introducing living plants on buildings and indoors in a way they would look like they crawl naturally. Paris Design Week gave me the opportunity to meet the designer and understand how a vertical garden works. Seeing the artists newest work the Oasis of Aboukir designed for Paris Design Week 2013 made me reconsider the way we look at buildings. Installed and grown in just seven weeks, the huge vertical garden is an inspiring, green way of repopulating the urban jungle with greenery.
