Innovation Inspiration: Patrick Blanc

I have been intrigued about living walls for quite some time. I researched a bit about them for a project at the Ontario Science Centre and now am constantly toying with the idea of building one in miniature.

Patrick Blanc is who I would consider the pioneer of the living wall. His work is very inspiring.

Blanc seems to spent a lot of time travelling for inspiration and has hair as green as his walls… how fabulous! He has listed some sources of inspirations on his site which is fun to look at.

Be sure to check out his website for more of his work.

On a smaller scale, Flora Grubb Gardens presents a fairly convincing case to purchase their DIY living wall kit, with this photo:


I love their use of the succulents.

I think eventually I will try to tackle it on my home somehow – too great of inspiration not to!

    I had not heard of the living wall. I think that it is cool. If you decide to try it on a small scale, you have to post pictures. I think that is cool.
