Garden Travel: Patrick Blanc’s Wall at Musee du quai Branly, Paris

How many green walls can boast about looking this good at nine years old…in January?  Easily found about two blocks from the Eiffel Tower, Patrick Blanc’s green wall, completed in 2005, on a Jean Nouvel designed museum, has held up beautifully.  I’ve seen so many crappy green walls that I was totally delighted when I turned the corner and saw it.

    Beautiful, so I can’t dismiss it as a gimmick. Any idea what the maintenance costs are? I’d think quite high.

  2. It apparently takes a bit of maintenance likeany green space, but I have no idea of the cost.

    What a beautiful wall! I’m impressed that somebody didn’t tear all that growth down! Would be awesome to paint a picture of that.
