The Wall Garden


A giant garden - on a wall. In fact it is the biggest wall garden in the UK (at present).  There are plans for another one that will be be the biggest in Europe, but we'll save that one for another day.  The construction of this garden began just a couple of weeks ago.  Do you remember my post about the walkie scorch building back in September?  As a wee reminder it is one of the new skyscrapers in the city that turns into a giant magnifying glass at high sun, melting what ever it reflects its beams back on to.  The building in the corner of the images with the pale green glass is in fact a wee corner of said building.  
The garden is going to be ok - they are planning on putting giant sunglasses on the walkie scorchie to protect it and anything in its wake.

Love the look of garden walls. Passed by something similar near Kings Cross/Reagents canal last year.

I'm lucky yo live on an island, so we have a lot of green areas. Urban gardens are much needed as quiet retreats.

I have seen a big vertical garden somewhere, but at the moment I am suffering from memory failure.

Yes, I do remember the story about the building that melted everything near it. Once it has its sunglasses, I hope you show it.
