World’s Tallest Vertical Garden in Sydney

The world’s tallest vertical garden now graces the Sydney skyline in the form of a towering residential high rise cloaked in living forestry.
The highly anticipated ‘One Central Park’ is now complete - and it features a park of its own that climbs 166 meters into the sky “in a breathtaking marriage of architecture and nature.”
The intricate project reminds “us all that the natural world can thrive in harmony with the built urban environment. Indeed, it should,” the website inhabitat said.
Designed by Parisian architect Jean Nouvel in collaboration with French artist and botanist Patrick Blanc, the garden’s living green facade exhibits 250 species of native Australian flowers and plants. Its vines and foliage intertwine between each floor on lush balconies, in a vertical continuation of the park below.

 Thoughtfully Curated
The living and breathing structure was thoughtfully curated to ensure that every aspect of the design serves a significant purpose. This is especially apparent in the gleaming assembly of motorized mirrors that rests atop the towers, designed to capture sunlight and direct rays down onto the living landscape below. As the sun sets, the enigmatic structure transforms into a glittering display of LED lights designed by renowned lighting artist Yann Kersalé.
The garden is part of an ‘urban village’ in downtown Sydney that features residential towers, retail shops and collaborative spaces for artists and architects. The dynamic setting was designed around a beautiful and spacious 64,000 square meter park. Much like New York’s iconic Central Park, the grounds will serve as a tranquil respite from city life, with a large lawn for relaxation, chessboards, an open-air cinema, and occasional festivals and live music.
‘One Central Park’ exemplifies what many envision as the future of urban architecture. As concrete structures pave skylines around the world, the urban heat island effect causes temperatures to rise, and a severe lack of greenery has worsened air quality and pollution. The innovative solutions embodied in this building offer a glorious new vision for future cities.
