Vegitecture | A Look At Barcelona's Green Wall

Barcelona has long been known for its unique Gaudí architecture. Now the city is home to yet another innovative style architecture which was inspired by food and gardening: vegitecture.

Vegitecture was born after a demolished building left an eyesore in one of the city's neighborhoods. The blank wall left behind inspired a vertical garden, which was designed by Capella Garcia Arquitectura.

The plain side wall was outfitted with a 21 meter (69 feet) tall vertical steel structure connected by interior stairs. The structure is now home to a wide assortment of plants, which are watered using a system of pulleys. Not only is this green wall a fine example of vegitecture, it has also become a sanctuary for urban birds.
