Greenscapers or greenscrapers, three examples of a trend to incorporate greenery as an integral part of the architectural design of towers: 1 2 3 4 5
  • One River North (US) Perhaps taking a cue from the Grand Canyon, this Colorado high-rise residence features a signature rift in its design. The rift encompasses gardens and a four storey hiking trail.
  • Capitaspring (SG) The exterior of this building looks conventional. The greenery is inside the building: 1) a ground level enclosed public park, 2) a mid-level sky garden and 3) a roof-level urban farm and observatory deck.
  • 4 Seasons (AU). Instead of a polished glass facade, this Melbourne tower features flora terraces. Uniquely, the check-in for the hotel is at a top floor with spectacular views, instead of the usual ground floor.
