Vertical green (VG) has a great potential to cool buildings, to recycle and upcycle wastes, rainwater and grey water, to produce food or bio-energy and to generate green spaces nearly everywhere in cities – almost independent of available horizontal space.
We will re-develop VG according to stakeholder needs, e.g. we will adapt it to diff erent architectures, diff erent climates and reduce maintenance costs through automated machinery so that VG may unfold its full positive impacts to as many urban neighbourhoods as possible.
Vertical Green 2.0 – Vertical greening for liveable cities – co-create innovation for the breakthrough of an old concept
