Terapia Urbana, a company founded by architects and engineers at the University of Seville has installed this beautiful vertical garden at the USP Sagrado Corazón Clinic in Spain. The first vertical garden to be installed in a hospital center in Europe, the wall features a high-tech system that controls the garden with pH, temperature and humidity probes. The design includes more than 1,400 plants from some 40 species, and it’s inspired by Burle Marx‘s “Hanging Garden.”
