VERTICAL HYDROPONICS FOR URBAN AREAS
Moving into urban areas demands concepts for the association with negative impacts on city climate. High-density cities and quarters often cannot provide an aesthetically appealing and healthy environment. Buffer and recreation areas could just hardly be established on sealed underground. In face of these developments facade greenery still lives a shadow existence beside common types of green spaces. Today the potential of vertical vegetation could be better used because of the possible combination of adapted hydroponic plant systems and modern high performance construction materials to standardised modules.
