Cities Alive: Green Building Envelope

Can retrofitting cityscapes with vegetation improve the health and well-being of urban citizens? Can we use green facades to capture renewable energy and drive sustainability?

Working from the basic premise outlined in the "Cities Alive" document, the document considers whether green facades can have a special role to play in improving our cities for their inhabitants.
