In 2010 Salzburg did an experiment: transform St Julien Street in less than 24h from a car space to a pedestrian friendly space. We need more demonstrations like this!

Eco-Systems - William Lee
Many walls in our towns and cities can be viewed as blank, featureless canvases that could provide excellent opportunities to create living designs. This was the inspiration that led me to develop an exterior tile cladding system, which controls and manipulates plant growth as a medium to create pattern. The tiles, which sit on top of existing living wall systems, aims to create visual harmony by allowing vegetation to better integrate into the urban environment.
