The Shaker Lakes Garden Club presents
PATRICK BLANC (Paris, France)
World’s leading expert on Vertical Gardens

 

Vertical gardening has become trendy in recent years, a movement led by Patrick Blanc. Special patented techniques enable him to explore new territory and create artistic, soil-less gardens on the exteriors and interiors of museums, hotels, corporations and homes of the ultra-wealthy. He is in demand among an international cadre of architects, developers, and environmental groups, but is just as pleased to be invited to Cleveland by the Shaker Lakes Garden Club.

 

Using both man-made and natural walls, Blanc’s work ranges from “green painting” grand-scale masterpieces that cover skyscrapers to multi-story interior hanging of “green chandeliers.” His creativity enhances beauty and nature as well as improving air quality and lowering energy consumption.

 

Patrick Blanc discovered tropical plants as a teenager and holds two doctorate degrees in tropical rainforest botany. His many awards include the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, the Botany prize from the French Academy of Sciences, Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and Time magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of the Year.

 

It is an honor to welcome him to Cleveland.
