Essential Benefits of Rainwater Harvesting
Fresh water is essential for everyday life. We need it in all aspects of life from drinking to cooking to bathing to cleaning.
Architects are creating one big change in their design today - they are incorporating more green and less steel, glass and concrete into the outer facade. Sheathing buildings with glass has become passe - now architects are opting for natural sheathing with plants, shrubs, dwarf trees and a variety of creepers. Growing plant in the building can help to filter air particle and help to control air quality as well as some level of humidity. It also helps to save water by reducing the need for irrigation and watering. Architects in Australia and Malaysia have also ensured that the trend was seen as more than a mere flash in the pan. From hotels in Paris to apartments in Lebanon, everyone has started to use unique designs to establish vertical gardens.
A vertical garden surrounding your building comes with benefits that go beyond beauty. Living walls or vertical gardens help in reducing air pollution. These livings walls last for up to 25 years and help absorb carbon dioxide, one of the largest air-pollutants. They also help in bringing the temperature of the building down thus reducing its dependency on air-conditioning systems.
One cannot overestimate the importance of green wall technology, which provides architects with new ecological elevation material. Vertical gardening in urbanization area provide ecosystem services in urban areas, including improved storm-water management, better regulation of building temperatures, reduced urban heat-island effects, and increased urban wildlife habitat. From Brazil and France to Lebanon, Vietnam and China, architects are designing green buildings and houses to combat air pollution and put the country back into the city. There is a renewed interest in the vertical gardens and the host of benefits from this new trend are helping push this movement into high gear.
Urban vertical gardens today refer to the building facade, living walls, and vertical freestanding structure.
The whole design of urban vertical gardens depends on the selection of plants. Plants have various uses, some of them creeper up the building facade, a few grow in their respective pots as a dwarf variety, while others have the ability to grow wild. Some of the common plants include India Basil, Aloe vera, sage, spider plant, Fern, Pothos, jade plant, Fenugreek, Heartleaf, croton, self-climbing plants, and tendrils among others.
Vertical gardens can be created indoors and outdoors while creating an aesthetic look. The vertical garden buildings are still seen as spaces for the elite and have not come down to the ordinary citizen. If this can happen then we may never need to worry about air pollution ever again.
