I love this idea: one of Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh’s renowned paintings, A Wheatfield, with Cypresses, is in the process of being adapted to a ‘living wall’ or vertical garden at London’s National Gallery. The painting is in the Gallery’s collection and the vertical garden is on an external wall and will mirror the composition of the painting via more than 25 different plant species.
Rooftop and vertical gardens are great for densely populated areas as they reduce carbons, cool physical spaces and are an ingenious way of bringing nature back into urban places. Click here for an image of the garden-in-process.
