I'll blog the gardens at a later point, right now I want to oooh and ahhh over the Supertrees. These structures range from 9 to 16 stories tall and some of them have been outfitted with solar panels to power night lighting. The Supertrees also harvest rainwater to re-use on the plantings.
Bonus points for beautiful night lighting and projection. These remind me of the Boston Treepods I blogged a few weeks ago.
