It might be assumed that, with increased density of high-rise construction, there will be less greenery in our cities. But many projects have not only proven this to be untrue – some have increased the amount of greenery on a given plot of land, through creative use of the vertical and horizontal surfaces provided by these massive buildings.

Join some of the world’s strongest and most successful advocates for, and experts on greening the vertical habitat.
