In anticipation of Greenroofs.com’s spectacular 2015 Virtual Summit on April 6 through May 31 – and in order to familiarize you with the event – we are now making the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 videos publicly available on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube to all free of charge.
Today we have the pleasure to air the Individual Video “Phyto Kinetic: Gardens in Movement” by Marc Grañén. He is actually our newest contributing editor here at Greenroofs.com, and I am in the middle of translating his first column – look for it very soon! We will present it in both English and Spanish, the first time we publish an article in two languages.
Marc says, “I have a real need to observe all that involves me, to capture the essence of each small part of a landscape, in order to understand the natural balance of Nature, that Nature we had already pushed out from our lives. So I created Phyto Kinetic, to gain those lost green spaces in where there’s only concrete and asphalt; a world trademark to “engarden” the roofs of public transport. Finally, we have started to have green roofs and vegetal walls; now we have also gardens in movement.” Marc’s presentation will be in English.
Marc dice que tiene necesidad de observar todo lo que lo envuelve, para captuar la esencia de cada parte pequeño del paisaje par mejor entender el balance natural de la Naturaleza. Creyó Phyto Kinetic para ganar esos espacios verdes perdidos en donde sólo hay concreto y asfalto. Al fin, hemos comenzado a tener azoteas verdes y muros vegetados; ahora tenemos jardines en movimiento.
“Bescanó, Spain. Marc Grañén says, “My artistic point of view of life and my intense love of natural landscapes make the perfect combination for what has become my daily occupation. I am a landscape artist. Nature is my inspiration and my family, my best teacher. We live in Bescanó, our small hometown in the northeast of Spain.” ~ VS2013
