Édouard François is a renowned architect and has a cutting edge knack for green wall design, both showcased beautifully in his Tower Flower. With no plans to let tenants start balcony gardens, the designer has incorporated 380 potted plants into the railing structure of the building's stacked wrap-around porches.

With so much burgeoning bamboo escaping from the edges of the Tower Flower, the green wall concept benefits the tenants in a number of ways. Providing shade from direct sunlight, an outdoor sanctuary and natural air fresheners, as a home, Tower Flower would be a bed of roses.
