Monday Murals

A different kind of murals this week. Not design with paint but with plants. This is the World Largest Vertical garden.

Standing at 19-meter high and 110-meter wide the 2,125 square metres green wall at Ocean Financial Center achieved the Guinness World Record for the Largest Vertical Garden on 13 September 2013. It is an eco-breakthrough which has placed Singapore on the world map of sustainability.

Close to 57,000 pots of plants make up the map of Singapore Southeast Asia and the World on the vertical garden. It is further enhanced with a three-dimensional effect with different growth protrusions of 25 plant species.

This vertical greenery not only helps to reduced the surface temperature of the car park, it also acts as a green lung filtering out vehicular emissions, and provides visual relief from the dense concrete Central Business District.
