Green Architecture: Madrid Museum Garden-Wall

"Green Vertical Garden (wall) in Madrid" Green Packs (we care for the environment) (March 17, 2008)

It's green. It's a wall. It's the newest museum in Madrid. Three photos and description.

Swiss architects Herzog and Meuron put 250 species, 15,000 plants in all, on an exterior wall.

It looks good. One of the photos was the sort I appreciate: an eye-level shot, giving a view of the building as a visitor sees it. Right now, there's a rather interesting abstract pattern on the 'garden wall.'

I trust that the architects took maintenance into account: so that as the plants grow, age, and (I resume) require replacement, the building will still look good.
