Patrick Blanc – the botanist, creator of the vertical garden. In 2001, his first large vertical greening was completed at the Pershing Hall Hotel in Paris. Since then, Patrick Bronck has been known as the “king of vertical greening.” In 2009, his concept of vertical greening was on the annual list of the “Best 50 Great Inventions in the World” by Time magazine of the United States, which caught the attention of the whole world. He has designed more than 300 vertical gardens around the world so far. Some are located indoors, some are located outdoors, covering museums, office, boutiques, apartments, hotels and exhibition spaces.

How to solve the problems related to human existence in modern life is the motivation behind Patrick Blanc’s creation.

“I think now that about half of the world’s people, that is, about 3 billion people live in cities, we have less and less links with the land, and now because of the global temperature rise and the fear of influenza A, Due to the gradual increase in the urban population, people are very interested in how to live in harmony with nature. The plant wall is about breathing. It provides some optimistic information. This is a very important proof that humans have not destroyed everything. We can still create things in a positive way. The plant wall not only makes people want to take pictures, but also brings happiness; we even see birds nesting on the plant wall.” — Selected works by Patrick Blanc

One Central Park
This is a recent collaboration between Blanc and Jean Nouvel. As the surface of the world’s largest vertical garden covered building, it is also the tallest of the vertical gardens Patrick Blanc has ever built. More than 250 Australian plants and flowers on the façade are planted and climbed on the building, from the ground floor to the top floor, making the building a green tree of the new century and redefining the Sydney skyline, this 64,000-square-meter project The lush greenery is as quiet as New York’s Central Park. And let the green visual sense extend to the central park with 6,400 square meters. Dense bushes, open lawns and swimming pools are great places to relax with family and friends.

Bangkok landmark EmQuartier atrium
At the EmQuartier Mall in Bangkok, the green plants that surround the layers pour down from the heights, like a green waterfall, like a spiral staircase.

Paris, France
Blanc turned the ordinary building facade into a gorgeous green space. This is what he firmly believes can greatly improve the quality of urban space.

The vertical garden is planted with 237 plants and arranged in a diagonal-like mode to create a unique vibrancy and movement.

This project also demonstrates the evolution of the idea of Blanc’s work: from a preliminary geometric frame pattern to a checkerboard pattern where each plant is carefully placed in a specific position.

CaixaForum Museum
The CaixaForum Museum in Madrid, Spain has become a new cultural and artistic landmark in the region. Everyone who visits the CaixaForum Museum in Madrid can’t help but attract the huge mural “mural painting” standing next to the square. The giant “mural painting” of 24 meters high and 460 square meters is composed of More than 15,000 plants of 250 species; unlike the traditional vertical greening, this giant “mural” main structure is only a little more than 5 cm, which is the limit that other existing vertical greening techniques can achieve. Many people have doubts about the true and false plants. If you don’t see them, many people can’t believe that such a thin structure can carry such a huge number of plants and flowers.

Blanc’s most famous work is the Quai Branly Museum, which he opened in Paris in June 2006. This is his collaboration with Jean Nouvel, which combines nature and architecture through the art of plant-made environmental installations.

Why do the vertical gardens I created, no matter how different the country and the situation, have all had a huge impact? Perhaps it is only because every person standing in front of the green wall, regardless of his age, gender, cultural background and social status, can give a vast sense of vastness in the city. The vertical garden gives the impression that it is not as simple as the vertical arrangement of plants. I believe that the wide variety of plants and the natural patterns that these plants have been specially arranged are the real reasons why vertical gardens are popular with the public.
