Did you know that more than half of Vienna is covered in greenery? You'll find parks and gardens, but also countless green roofs and facades. Cities are constantly expanding and therefore the amount of greenery is decreasing. However, we can bring it back, as other large Austrian cities such as Salzburg, Linz, and Graz, which are full of green buildings, are proving.
It is estimated that by 2050, around 68% of the population will live in cities, increasing our need for proximity to nature. That's why sustainability has been a priority in architecture in recent years, and innovations such as vertical gardens make it easy to bring greenery into cities and improve the quality of life for their inhabitants. You can also read why we should green our cities in the article "Mehr als Zierde" in the Austrian magazine Architektur, which also features LIKO-S green facades and living walls.
