With the advent of increased environmental awareness in all areas of life, and the associated implementation strategies, the concept of sustainability has become a driving force of architecture and landscape architecture, both in terms of urban planning and construction. The diverse positive effects of the greening of exterior and interior of building envelopes cannot be matched by any other construction principles. As a result, a great variety of possibilities for planting facades, roofs and interior spaces are constantly being developed, tested and applied. The cross-discipline interlacing of technical and design aspects has resulted in a number of remarkable projects around the world. This volume presents a carefully selected range of such works. At the same time, many creative possibilities of this unique symbiosis of nature and architecture are still to be explored!
