Project: Vent Vert
Architect: Edward Suzuki Associates
Located in the Minato-Ku ward of Tokyo, this eight-story building boasts a bounty of plants affixed to a curving lattice on its front façade. This lush hanging garden appears as a patchwork pattern, alternating between blocks of green and transparent windows, bringing the serenity of the natural environment into the bustle of one of the world's largest cities. A commercial space is located on the street level, while the upper floors host apartments that take in the benefits of the living wall.
