Vertical Garden Madrid

The square of CaixaForum, an impressive architectural intervention, is accompanied by a pond and a fresh and lush green wall, as a vertical garden, which occupies the entire sidewalk of a side building.

Patrick Blanc builds from his axiom «plants do not need land, only water, minerals, light and carbon dioxide.» Following this conviction, he built a spectacular plant wall 24 meters high with 250 different species that survive without land and resemble a living picture.
