Lavallee Brensinger Architects hosted Cityscapes’ Jan Goodman yesterday for an AIA presentation on living walls. The presentations are good for a Continuing Education Unit required for architects, designers, and engineers. Whether or not you are attending for a CEU, the presentation is great for all who are curious about the design, installation, maintenance, applications, and benefits of vertical gardens.

Cityscapes’ Operations Team dropped by Boda Borg last week for a whole day of questing at the new location in Malden. They broke up into groups and had some friendly competition to see who get get through their quests first.
Quests consist of a combination of mental and physical exercises that are truly dependent on teamwork to complete. This is a great team-building field trip for companies as well as families and friends. Check out Boda Borg at their website.
Green Fortune, out of Stockholm, Sweden, works to increase the biophilic connection using PlantWalls.
These living walls have been popular across the pond for years and are beginning to really take off in the United States. Check out some of Green Fortune’s work here.
Want your space to stand apart from all the other brand new, stark, minimalist, clean-line renovations that are happening in every office and lobby in the city?
Give Cityscapes a call and let our designers bring the space to life.
With so much focus on minimalism in interior design these days, a refreshing movement toward ‘biophilic design’ is gaining popularity every day.
Many architects and clients alike seem to be over-appreciating the concept of white space, clean lines and beauty in nothingness. And while it is hard not to appreciate these new-aged, semi-futuristic interior spaces, it is also easy to lose sight of a core architectural design concept: blurring the lines between inside and out.
Some may think that large glass curtain-walls with views to every direction on a compass get the job done, but why not take it one step further? Bring the environment outside into your interior space so you can see, hear, smell, and touch nature while indoors.
