Visualizing the Viaducts - Submission #22
The green viaduct gardens hang down over lush parklands, evoking moist canyon walls and local ecology. Sculptural drupes of luxurious chandeliers complement the textural blend of ferns, mosses, ivies and salals. The gardens are composed of living wall panels that filter air and water particulates, and are watered using recycled stormwater from the overhead roadways. Vancouver’s hanging gardens are charismatic urban green spaces and global flagships of green technology.
