Terapia Urbana [2], a company founded by architects and engineers at the University of Seville has installed this beautiful vertical garden [3] 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 [4]‘s “Hanging Garden.”
