Abstract

Thessaloniki, Greece is densely packed with buildings and lacks room for typical green spaces. This project assessed the feasibility and value of incorporating vertical gardens on walls along Egnatia Corridor in Thessaloniki. Citizen questionnaires, spatial analysis, and expert interviews yielded design preferences, potential locations, and suitability factors for vertical gardens. We developed an interactive map and framework of criteria to select garden sites using spatial analysis and proposed four conceptual designs for vertical gardens along the corridor.
