The latest in the line of urban gardens is a beautiful vertical garden located in the town square of San Vicente del Raspeig in the southeast of Spain. The garden on the facade of a new children’s library has been designed by architect Jose Maria Chofre. All of six storeys, the vertical garden brings to the fore a spectacular organic contrast to the urban complex and the surrounding angular concrete buildings, says Inhabitat.

Built of metal frames , the garden has been installed on a dividing wall between the library and an apartment. Plants have been inserted into the frame between two metal grids using synthetic felted material. The vertical garden boasts of various species of flora and herbaceous plants .
