I am loving the fact that MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) put up small vertical gardens at P. Tuazon underpass. They are waaaaay better than paintings, in my opinion. I just wish they would do something about the tiles.
Vertical gardens are becoming the rage I believe because of the rising costs of land and man's need for greenery. One of the most celebrated vertical garden designers (if not the most) is French botanist Patrick Blanc. His works include the one located at Icon Hotel, Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. It's my favorite installation so far. Did you hear my jaw drop?
