Far from ivy, these walls are the work of French botanist/designer, Patrick Blanc. I stumbled across these designs in a recent Business Week article. The most amazing feature of these elaborate plant walls are the many varieties of plants representing unique textures and colors. Plant walls are made of a rigid plastic structure with a pocketed plastic felt-like covering. "None of my walls resemble each other, as everything depends on location, climate, and aesthetic objectives." - Patrick Blanc...

Blanc has designed walls for both interiors and exteriors. He has worked with both Renzo Piano and Jean Nouvel. I'd be interested to see the 25-minute documentary described in this synopsis. Additional information can be found at Echo Studio.
