Highest Vertical Garden Project

Share |

An inventor of conceived vertical gardens Patrick Blanc and a French architect Jean Nouvel have designed a living breathing Eden to be built in Sydney. Blank who has been involved in creation of vertical gardens for over 20 years and Novel, the winner of the Pritzker Prize (equivalent of the Nobel Prize in architecture), have teamed up for the impossible: they are planning to transform the skyline of the most populous city in Australia with their vertical garden. They have chosen the residential buildings in Central Park in Sydney for the project.

To do this, the entire perimeter of the 146-meter wall of the building should be covered in vines and other creepers, and 50% of the facade landscaped by indigenous Australian plants and 160 species of other exotic plants. According to Patrick, the living wall should simulate a real green rock and resemble a “piece” of the “cake” of the famous Blue Mountains, beginning in the suburbs of the city.

Mirror heliostats will be mounted on the towers to provide the energy of the sun for the garden. Mirrors will “capture” the sunlight automatically redirecting it to the gardens, which will surround the complex. The heliostats will be located in the console of the building, under thirty-four luxury penthouses. At night the cantilevered portion of the complex will be transformed into a kind of flickering LED installation. This installation is currently created by a lighting designer Yann Kersalé.
