Vertical Gardening for urban environments

Walls in cities deliver an huge amount of space. Mostly this kind of space is very often unused. Vertical Gardening could be an approach for making this kind of space used for a more sustainable city infrastructure. In my installation I focused on walls, which are close to canals and rivers.

Some more information and links about the topic of Vertical Gardening:

My construction is a mix of the rain water gutter and the window garden. It will be fixed on the top of a wall and can be tilt up and down along the wall. The advantage of this approach is that it does not limit the funtion of the wall as a bank.
