Green Walls: The Green Roofs of 2008?

This rather stunning green wall building in Seoul, South Korea, has been making the rounds of the sustainability blogs today; it houses a Belgian fashion designer’s shop along with a restaurant and other smaller shops. Green walls, in the form of replaceable tiles, are covered in Pachysandra terminalis, a herbaceous perennial evergreen groundcover, and cover both the exterior as well as interior walls. Check out the Mass Studies Architects’ site for 35 images of the building and dream of the day when all buildings can look like this one.
