Living Facade by zasu Living Facade by zasu
saw this incredible building in Avignon, France - the entire front was covered in living plants. i want a house like this - and an army of gardeners/rock climbers to maintain it, mais oui!

I love vegetal wall (that's the name of these architecture here).

In my town, Lausanne, we have the biggest vegetal wall of Switzerland, I'm so proud! :D
And the plants are all indigen (right word?). And there is a system that collects rain and uses to water our vertical garden! :D *proud proud proud lol*

That's the first one of this article!

If you want a house like it, read this article! (ARGH, this stupid website doesn't work anymore!!! :'( )
In one word, that's an ingeener and he has a wonderful vegetal roof! :D Very very wonderful, not like these flat roof with some Sedum (I love Sedum, but that's not very original and diversified!)

when i stayed in germany a few years ago, my apartment over looked an architect's home, where he'd created a living sedum roof. i really loved all the changes in color and texture, but i understand that sedum has become a cliche - i loved how diversified and wild this wall looked.

and, i wish those photos were larger - i'd love to study them more and i would have loved to read the other article - too bad it is no longer working :/

my husband built a stone building for the spring where the mineral water he used to bottle comes out - it has a living roof. all indigenous plants too - but they're a little boring - all wild grasses, really. nothing with any other texture or flowers.
