Green roofs and living walls are still incipient elements of the urban landscape in Monterrey, Mexico, a city with extreme temperatures (from 110°F in the summer and -30°F in the winter). This project, a 680 sq. ft green wall, designed and installed by the very proud-to-be-Mexican company Biozotea, is one of the first examples of vertical gardens in Monterrey. The system is 100% made in Monterrey, and is irrigated using only condensate water, saving more than 16,000 gallons per year.

    Is also worth mentioning that the green wall includes various edible and aromatic plants, such as rosemary, basil, mint and others, which are used to decorate the daily buffet, along with some of the flowers grown on it. All irrigation for the biopared along all the gardens around the building comes from the A/C condensates.
