Industrial designer Jeffrey Greger has created a concept of living urban structures called Verdance. It tackles the issue of fresh air in urban areas.

Verdance consists of quite beautiful flowing urban structures. These green streams bring back native plants in the city with the help of vertical gardening, which provides more space in the overcrowded city landscape. Verdance definitely gives us insight into the future of urban landscapes.

Implications - In large cities, coming across grassy areas is often very rare. Seeing architects create urban environmental sculptures gives a hint that perhaps urban cities need to become a little more green. Having a green city is the ultimate step towards fighting global warming.
