Passing through Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, a busy hub full of florescent lighting and stressed out people, I found a green sustainable garden growing among all the chaos and environmental pollutants.
The Rotunda Tower Garden won the Design and Construction Award for its indoor aeroponic garden that grows edible plants and herbs. The plants are then used in the restaurants within the airport. The material used to build the tower are made from local recyclable structural steel, glass partitions, security doors, electrical panels and furniture.
This live green environmentally friendly garden was a fresh and tasty stopover, providing me with a healthy sense of relief that even in urban USA, a plot of sustainable garden can still be found.
