Sydney’s One Central Park, the World’s Tallest Vertical Garden

To see more photos and videos of the vertical garden, explore the Central Park location page on Instagram.

At Central Park in Sydney, Australia, a 33-floor residential building known as One Central Park houses the world’s tallest vertical garden. Designed by Parisian architect Jean Nouvel, the garden towers at 115 meters (380 feet) and showcases panels of greenery designed by French botanist Patrick Blanc. The panels, some of which are several stories tall, are scattered around the building’s facade and carry 450 types of plants (250 of which are local species).

In addition to the garden, One Central Park is also known for the cantilever that juts out from the top floors of the building. A heliostat of motorized mirrors is installed underneath the cantilever, reflecting sunlight to various areas of the garden. LED art installations designed by French light artist Yann Kersalé are also built into the cantilever, lighting up the environment throughout the night.

Caregiver Stress is Real!

Direct family to direct support professionals should work hard to manage stress. You can’t take care of another person if you don’t take care of yourself. Right now I take care of a beautiful 80 yr old woman in her home who was diagnosed with dementia. I am learning to enjoy the small moments of piece and the tiny treasures we are blessed with each day. Today I am thankful for the sun shining, my wonderful fiancé and this cup of coffee I am about to enjoy. Love is good.

Peach has lived most of her life in castles filled with lava

She spent her vacation hot-tubbing it up in an active volcano

She has been kidnapped to space

And the one time she actually got pissed off, she starred in her own game and rescued everyone with the power of emotion.

You think a tiny little laser explosion will break that iron princess demeanor?

Bitch, please.

Peach will wreck you.
