World wide buildings are being built covered with plants.  This is a pragmatic approach to reducing the energy use in the buildings.  And it looks good; and we feel more relaxed surrounded by greenery.

Buildings covered in a carpet of vegetation and greenery are sprouting up all over the world – look at One Central Park in Sydney, Bosco Verticale in Milan, or Oasia Hotel Downtown in Singapore.
