Here at Trend Hunter, we've covered a ton of green buildings, but this incredible structure by Samyn and Partners takes that concept quite a bit more literally.

The building is covered in a dense envelope of plant life selected by vertical green wall artist Patrick Blanc. By covering the building in a living wall instead of a mere facade of ivy or brick, Samyn and Partners have managed to create a structure that contributes to the environmental health of its surroundings while also providing a comfortable work and living space for its occupants.
