Green Wall In Paris

I hadn’t heard of the Quai Branly Museum when I went to Paris (by Eurostar) so I didn’t know much about how controversial building by Jean Nouvel. Therefore it was a strange but nice sight to come across a living wall on the side of the building. Installed by Patrick Blanc it works by growing plants hydroponically in felt pockets attached to a rigid plastic backing.

I particularly like the fact people were gathered around to look at it, take photos next to it and even add a flower or two to it.
