Hideo Kumaki Architect recently sent us news about a verdant planted curtain they planted outside of a Tokyo home. The Green Screen acts as a natural shade that keeps the interior of the home cool while also creating an aesthetically pleasing view from the kitchen. The curtain will continue to grow and become even fuller as the plants mature.
