Plant curtains for everybody!

Cities become more and at the same time bigger. Glass facades increase. There is no solution for vegetating glass in a functional way
A free DIY design empowers everybody worldwide to green their individual parts of the skyline by themselves. The instructions are for free for everybody to download, use, adapt, improve, and further elaborate the idea
Every glass facade worldwide could become green, enhance biodiversity, produce oxygen and provide agricultural potential

Please, have a look!

Our Vision: Green skylines everywhere!

Together with you and your friends, we want to disruptively change skylines, like a puzzle, into green skylines. For that we provide a first impulse with the ‘Bioblinds 1st Edition IVY‘ and the Bioblinds homepage, as a construction manual hub. You can download the first edition focusing on ivy under ‘DIY-editions’ in the top right corner of this website!

Everybody is invited to join our initiative, collaborate, contribute and participate in the research. Our utopian dream is an online configurator that collects all necessary data and provides it as individual construction plans and shopping lists, free of charge for every climate zone and in respect to diverse and local plants. We not only want to improve CO2 compensation, increase urban greenery and vegetate glass facades, but also allow for individual food production and foster biodiversity in urban environments.

The idea originally is meant for social housings but can also be applied to every kind of architecture, inspiring new kinds of green, interactive buildings and city plannings. Just imagine the possibilities of individually harvested vertical fields for every kind of housing on this planet in a way that it actually can be handmade. For us this expresses ‘democratic freedom’ in a tangible way. That is why we have chosen 2020, the 30-year anniversary of the German Reunification, for the start of ‘Bioblinds – The Green Skyline Initiative‘.

We are especially excited about working already on our second edition. That one will be for cowsheds. Yes, you heard that correctly. Cowsheds. 🙂

Let‘s jungle the cities together!
