The big picture: The Athenaeum's vertical garden

28 May 2009 by Mark Caswell

The “living wall” has been designed by French botanist Patrick Blanc, who has created similar vertical gardens on the walls of buildings including the Westin Hotel and Spa, Paris, and the forthcoming Skyteam lounge at Heathrow T4 (due to open next week).
