VIENNA: the building of MA 48 one year after finishing
The building of the Department MA 48 of the local administration in Vienna is covered with a new system for vertical green which has an electronic watering system and allows planting with various local plants.
One of the reasons to do this is a scientific one: what are the effects to micro particals pollution on a very stressy traffic route. That's why the system also is equipped with measuring apperature.
Now one year later the façade is already nearly covered by green. Within a short time we will get the first results of the research. Here some photos taken at 2012-05-05 and - even greener - 2012-06-18.
