I found this article by reading a story about oysters in Italy, then I was intrigued about your article title, living infrastructure… I am wondering, do you think Living Walls can be included and be considered part of “living infrastructure”? I believe Living Walls can be a viable solution and be part of a wider strategy that we need to take if we want to make progress in reducing our carbon footprint and Improve biodiversity into cities.
