Santalaia in Bogotá, Largest Vertical Garden in the World

Santalaia by Paisajismo Urbano and Groncol designed the largest vertical garden in the world. Located in Bogotá, Colombia, the Santalaia building is completely covered with a lush layer of 85,000 plants that span 3,100 square meters (33,368 square feet). A vertical garden of this size can produce enough oxygen for more than 3,100 people every year, process 1,708 pounds of heavy metals, filter more than 2,000 tons of harmful gases and catch more than 881 pounds of dust.
