Patrick Blanc, the inventor of living walls, has completed his latest vertical garden, covering the side of a five-storey Parisian block with waves of 7600 plants (+ slideshow).
The wall features plants from 237 different species and appears to grow up the facade in diagonal waves. It was planted in the spring and covers the previously raw concrete facade on the corner of Aboukir Street and Petits Carreaux street.
"I am very happy to contribute to the welfare and environmental consciousness of the inhabitants of a historic district in the heart of Paris," said Blanc, who has been creating green walls for more than 30 years.
Other living walls we've featured recently include London's largest green wall in Victoria that the designers said will combat flooding and a family house that conceals a wall of plants behind its slate-clad facade.
