Title: Vertical Gardens

ODS (Sustainable Development Objective): Sustainable Cities and Communities

Description: Quai Branly museum facade composed by a vertical garden. Paris, France.

Museé du Quai Branly in Paris. One of the many buildings in France where the so called “Green Roofs” architecture technique is implemented, such as in many other cities from other countries. Although very recent, this is viable and sustainable alternative to the traditional architecture. The use of vegetation and plant as coverings conveys environmental benefits such as pollution reduction (filtration of suspended particles), thermal insulation and an increase in biodiversity. Moreover, the “Green Roofs” technique is aesthetically appealing and pleasing to the eye.


The President of the School of Sciences, Professor Margarida Casal handed the prize to Ana Margarida Pereira.



Ilisa Antunes was awarded AS the Best Student of Ecology at the day of the School of Sciences (21 February 2017). The award was attributed by the Câmara Municipal de Guimarães and consists in a 12-month grant to develop research and dissemination activities for the public at the Landscape laboratory at the Veiga de Creixomil.
