Can’t decide on a green roof or a vertical garden ? No problem, just do both! R&Sie Architects designed the aptly-named ‘ Lost in Paris ‘ house for an ‘urban witch’ who feeds the house through 300 glass-blown pods. A potion of rainwater and plant nutrients nourishes 1200 ferns drop-by-drop throughout the year. The houseplants are entirely hydroponic, and completely engulfing the 1400 square foot concrete home. The blanket of ferns protects the house from outside elements and regulates its inside temperature, all the while adding life and freshness to the neighborhood.

Soaring Three-Story High GSky Green Wall Brings a Historic Building to Life

Comments Off on Soaring Three-Story High GSky Green Wall Brings a Historic Building to Life

GSky Plant Systems has installed a beautiful 1226 sq. ft. living wall in the atrium of a five-story historic building, 888 Brannan. Located below a massive skylight, the verdant GSky green wall is an unprecedented living artwork that breathes life into the building. GSky’s design inspiration for this living wall came from the famous San Francisco hills that make up the city’s urban landscape. Painted with a unique palette of 7042 four-inch potted plants, the green wall is a well-balanced union of nature, art and history. As we spend less time outdoors, the more we become disconnected from the natural world that is essential for our emotional, physical and mental well-being. A living green wall is a great way to bring nature back into our lives, as well as life and harmony to human-made structures. + GSky The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

A team of engineers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has developed a way to create computer chips that can repair themselves . The new chips can reportedly fix problems “ranging from less-than-ideal battery power to total transistor failure” in microseconds. These self-healing integrated chips may sound like the stuff of science-fiction, but if the team’s research is successful, they could potentially transform the electronics industry.
