A Journal exploring the value of plants and flowers

Via Verde

A community initiated project in Mexico city will turn hundreds of columns supporting an elevated motorway into an interconnected vertical garden. Spanning 27 kilometres in total,  research suggests that it will filter 27,000 tonnes of gas, provide clean oxygen for 25,000 citizens, and create hundreds of jobs through design, installation and maintenance. The design studio behind the project, Via Verde, has realised over 400  projects, bringing more than 30,000m2 of extra green space to Mexican cities, making themselves one of the most well established businesses in the industry.
