This picture shows a four story living wall in the Library and Academic Facility building of Toronto's Centennial Collage. I previously posted an external view of the building. Diamond and Schmitt Architects, the designers of this award winning building, pioneered the use of living walls in Canada, they made their first one for the University of Guelph Humber campus in Toronto 10 years ago, it is still doing very well.

Hello Barnabas, Libraries are fascinating places, old or modern ones, I visited some of them recently. We have also very nice library building in Warsaw, with the walls covered with greenery and the garden on the roof. My favorite place in the town. Here it also looks beautiful. Splendid place. But there is noone reading..
Warm regrads Malgo

This is real a modern architecture picture with this interior with modern seats.
Colours and sharpness make these picture very attractive.
I like your presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

From the thumbnail, I thought those green chairs were large piles of cash. I like the idea of this living wall, it does improve the appearance of the room very well, though the one thing I would think about this would be whether or not insects would be lurking inside. I really like how you have placed the lights in this view.
