The Largest Vertical Garden in the World
Located in Rozzano, Italy, the vertical garden at the Fiordaliso Shopping Center was recognized this week by the Guiness World Records as the largest vertical garden in the world.
Covering a surface of 1,263 square meters (13,594 square feet) with a total of 44,000 plants, the massive vertical garden surpassed the former record-holder, a vertical garden in Madrid that covered 844 square meters (9,085 sq ft).
The garden was innaugurated in 2010 and was designed by architect Francesco Bollani, who remarked, “it took us a year to grow the plants in a greenhouse and 90 days to build the facade. It was like building a giant Lego!”
