With a surface area of 2,289 square meters, the scarily huge vertical garden of the Tree House condominium in Singapore is certainly no shrinking violet. It’s so huge, it recently won the condo a Guinness World Record for having the world’s biggest vertical garden. Not that they’re useless at all: the cooling walls of green scale all the way up to the 24th floor and are targeted to help the building attain at least half a million dollars’ worth of savings from energy and water.
