What could we do for air and life quality? Instead of considering concrete and buildings as an enemy, we could consider them as an ally that could help us to transform our cities. Fernando Ortis Monasterio did this kind of reasoning. He verified the satisfaction of citizens by a campaign on and then he obtained money to invest in his project: the transformation of all the columns of the main junction of Mexico City in vertical gardens.

We’ve founded this two videos on youtube, but there are more on the facebook page here or if you want more information here is a dedicated site.
