Patrick Blanc is regarded as the inventor of the vertical garden – stunning tapestries of natural green textures that are not only beautiful but also beneficial to the air we breathe. Born in 1953 in the aptly named Clinique des Fleurs in the Paris suburb of Issy-les-Moulineaux, Patrick Blanc was interested in the natural world from an early age. Blanc visited the tropical jungles of Malaysia and Thailand for the first time at the age of 19, where he was no doubt inspired by the rain-forest conditions he encountered there.
