Title of the articleMulti-storey vertical park «MFO»
Abstract.Green walls can be subdivided into two major categories: Green Facades and Living Walls. The article considers one of the areas that is relevant for today, vertical gardening – green facades. And particularly striking example of the green wall is a «MFO» park in Zurich, which introduces a new concept in landscape architecture and forms, the term – the building as a landscape. Today, vertical gardening can act not only as a supplement to the architectural environment or as its design element, but as a unique independent unit that can create new forms or create new space. For the realization and acceptance of this possibility as a reality it took many years of experiments with vertical gardening. «MFO» park has become a shining example of the unique self-identity, embodied in itself all the accumulated experience of the use of vertical gardening. Park dictates a new concept of «landscape as a building» or «building as a landscape», made of stainless steel construction with modular bars and mesh of metal wires and five plant species. Also, it blurs the boundaries between «inside» and «outside» and confuses the concept of «park» and «building». In the further future this concept will help to enrich and harmonize the urban environment, to return the green areas and restore the natural balance in the major metropolitan areas. walls, living walls, vertical garden, vegetable wall, vertical kitchen garden, living wall, bio wall, green facade, design of architectural environment, modular trellis, grid and wire-rope net systems, the landscape as a building, the building as a scenery.
