Ko-Bogen 2 is an exceptionally innovative and well designed crystal complex building that is set to be constructed in the German city of Dusseldorf.

This crystal complex, designed by Ingenhoven Architects, will be notable for sporting green hedges all over its facades as well as the entire surface area of its roof. Overall, the building features as much as 4 km of hedges, marking it out from other buildings that only make spotty and inconsistent use of green hedges or plantation. The species of hedge used is called Hornbeam, and is commonly found in Dusseldorf's parks. This ensures that the building's green-topped facade will blend in with the city's unique character.

Ultimately, this beautiful crystal complex proves that green-focused architecture and aesthetics can combine well with modern, sleek building projects.
