History inspires Modern...again, again!
An interesting item posted by Tom Turner on his excellent blog. Vertical gardening goes big scale in Milan with the Bosco Verticale by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, which can trace its bosco elements back to gardens of the Italian Renaissance.
I love the concept, but practically I can see the arboricultural maintenance being a problem, wind perhaps too, and were I to be pay lots for a superb apartment, high up and with a view, would I want my distant vistas obscured by trees?
