Portland High-Rise To Feature Living Architecture
The entire west side of a high-rise in Portland, Oregon will be covered with vertical greenery.
The Edith Green/Wendaell Wyatt Federal Building in Portland, Oregon is scheduled to undergo major remodeling as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, with plans to cover the entire west side of the building in vertical greenery. Architectural plans specify a series of metal fins protruding outward, allowing for a 250-foot tall garden that allows light in the winter and shade in the summer.
