To Northern View Concept for a Treetower Back to Author
Vertical gardens around porches facing south & west of a model showing 6 floors of a projected
28-story building originally proposed for the Coal Harbour site in Vancouver. The large secluded
porches provide a sense of intimate foreground an amenity which is yet missing in traditional
highrise buildings. Planter boxes provide the basis for plants shading the living areas from sun
and noise. The vertical gardens would also cool the surrounding streets and they would make
air-conditioning unnecessary in a temperate climate.
