The opening of Jean Nouvel’s latest project, Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom Stilwerk has been met with much fanfare, and as we read through the reviews we saw another famous name that caught our eye. Vertical garden visionary Patrick Blanc also lent his skills to the project, creating a green wall for the building that includes 20,000 species of plants. Mr. Blanc’s studio was kind enough to send us these pictures of the completed work. Enjoy!
