The Athenaeum's vertical garden

Luxury London hotel The Athenaeum has created a vertical garden on the side of the Mayfair property. The “living wall” has been designed by French botanist Patrick Blanc, who has created similar vertical gardens on the walls of buildings including the Westin Hotel and Spa, Paris, and the forthcoming Skyteam lounge at Heathrow T4 (due to open next week).
