la ville fertile: urban gardens in paris

a wonderful exhibit on at the palais chaillot right across from le tour eiffel. questions the use of space in the urban landscape. and ponders the reality of living in an green urban jungle one day.

one of patrick blanc's masterpieces. this one is at the musee du quai branly.

a garden design by burle marx, one of the most renowned landscape architects, famouse for his design along the copacabana beach in brazil.

spring blooms at the large botanical garden right in the heart of the city.

the viaduct converted into a lush green walkway. la promenade plantee, from appx the bastille to gare du lyon and further.
lovely plantings along the rue de roisers in the marais (the place to go for a good street falafel)
by the gare du nord station. another PB masterpiece
