    Beautiful book about this magnificent way of bringing nature to the architecture. The only thing that I missed in this book is more explanation on how this living walls are built.

    This book is to die for. I'm trying not to drool all over it; way too nice a book for that, but it is just unreal. The photos are glorious, the background info on his research and methods fascinating. I want to find all of his walls and go see them and start making my own!

    It's a coffee table book of pretty pictures, slick but almost useless for a DIY or learning much about it.
