In an inspirational example of "productive architecture," this stunning plant wall is made up of the six types of traditional Lebanese vegetables that have been installed in a geometric pattern. The full plant wall installation is 18-meters long and 2.8-meters high, while it is made of steel.

Contained in the installation are 330 artichokes, 450 heads of Romaine lettuce, 330 heads of Lollo Verde, 330 heads of cauliflower, 165 heads of cabbage and 495 heads of Lollo Rosso. The Great Green Wall installation was designed by Lebanese architect Joseph Barakat and resides in the capital city's Beiruti café, located in the Gemmayzeh district.

The temporary installation was created in honor of Beirut Design Week 2015 and was designed so that when it is taken down, the veggies are able to be donated to local NGOs.
