With the growing eco movement, it is timely to look at urban nature concepts. The ideas highlighted here are examples of how innovative designers are coming up with ingenious solutions to injecting the natural world into urban spaces.

Urban nature is an exciting concept because of how -- if implemented properly -- our daily city routine’s can become more active. Imagine finishing work and going rock climbing on the side of your building or having an indoor vertical garden to pick fresh vegetables from at lunch.

The concept of urban nature fits within the larger green movement and expresses a desire to get back to our natural surroundings.
