I am always excited to see the trend of lush greens and solar energy being fully used for today's modern architecture. My first encounter to see this brilliant concept was in Taichung several years ago where they have a very healthy community living concept. They have a fabulous Green Zone in the city with smart green plants, forests and floral bushes with comfy benches besides the usage of myriad shades of green plants covering the walls of their shopping malls and all the ugly metal structures. You need to be there to witness their brilliance.

This was my old photo posted earlier.
Last Winter, I visited Fukuoka - Japan and was surprised to see a huge mall
in Hakata where 2 floors were fully overgrown with plenty
of green plants, tall trees, finest grass and lalang weeds!
It was mind blowing for me to see the abundance of healthy greens
on a cold winter day. I simply loved them all and took over 100 shots!
So far the closest green concept I have seen in KL is inside the
KLIA2 which is much lesser greens than this Japanese mall.
Nearby my office, there is another new concept of retail lots
with offices above. They use natural earthen bricks as bare walls.
The other block is raw bricks with unfinished walls
and plenty of trees on their courtyard balconies.
Nobody has rented this place yet and I am wondering.
This is another example of raw unfinished walls at the
Empire Damansara area.
This is my ideal dream house. A simple wooden house with large tall windows
by the forest greens with solar roofs to tap the sunlight's energy.
