I’d Go Green Over Grey Anyday!
November 18, 2010
I was recently in a meeting with fab Toronto green architect Paul Dowsett of Sustainable.TO, where we were pop-wowing on the re-imagination of a vintage soda bottling plant into lofty living spaces. The owner was proposing all sorts of visionary ideas, including the use of fibre optics to distribute natural light and vertical gardens to filter urban air and enhance well-being. It was both astonishing and refreshing to have these conversations when the development industry is often all-to-consumed with generating the highest return on investment at the lowest expense with the greatest ease.
In short order I received an email from one of Paul's team - Alex Vizvary. He sent us a link to this very cool Canadian firm who do vertical gardens. Called 'Green Over Grey - Living Walls & Design', the founders and chief designers of the Vancouver based company are Mike Weinmaster and Patrick Poiraud. Check out their website here to explore what I believe is the next big trend blowing in the breeze for essential living.
Isn't this fantastic?
