Hanging gardens are the new must-have for airports

Salt Lake’s airport is currently in the beginning stages of rebuilding itself. That will mean many changes, but perhaps one of those should be the addition of hanging gardens.

At least that’s the message I got from recent travels. In both Vancouver, Canada, and Portland, what would otherwise be large blank spaces have been covered in hanging gardens. I don’t know the history of these gardens, but in both cases they’re fairly young-looking, so I assume they’re relatively recent additions.

Hanging gardens aren’t particularly common in Utah at this point, but if you’re interested in a fantastic example, check out this post, which has a picture of the recently completed Lotus building.
