Kombucha and moss. Ukrainian woman figured out how to green facades and clean the air
How to make Ukrainian cities greener and more comfortable to live in? Kateryna Krolenko, a participant in the European Design Upgrade project, tried to answer this question. Recently, Kateryna presented her idea of landscaping urban spaces at the Dutch Design Week.
"All my life I lived near the forest and always felt the contrast between nature and a noisy city. One day, returning home, I saw how unnatural high-rise buildings look against the background of trees. I wished to green the facades of these buildings. I began thinking about how to do it," the NanoRetention project's creator states.
