Vietnamese Turned A Five-Storey House Into A Vertical garden

Vietnamese turned a five-storey house into a vertical garden, located in the Dong Da district of Hanoi. This is one of the most exclusive landmarks in the Vietnamese capital: a 5-storey building completely covered by a bright green curtain. The so-called "living building" of Hanoi is the work of Prof. Dr. Hoang Nhu Tang, a former professor at the University of Civil Engineering in Hanoi and a resident of this unique building. It all started 30 years ago, in 1990, when it was one of the tallest buildings in the region, which basically meant that there was almost no shelter from the scorching sun during the summer.
