The city is gritty and apparently quite park-poor, but people cannot get enough of plants. There are trees growing through walls, on roofs and everywhere you look. There are also container plants in streets, on sidewalks, on balconies, roofs, highway ramps – all over the place. Check out the following slideshow.
The large building at the end of the slideshow (oh, I wish I could include descriptions!) is the billion dollar house. Apparently 600 people work and live there, in addition to the owner and guests. The front of the building has a living wall that is truly amazing. The distribution of wealth is a bit off, don’t you think?
