We've already had a few glimpses inside Jean Nouvel's West Chelsea Vision Machine. But one 100 Eleventh Avenue amenity we've seen neither, er, leaf nor stem of is the six-story vertical garden. As per the starchibabble: "From planting boxes built into the structure, trees soar upward and plants cascade down the walls, lending their scent to the atmosphere." Well, the garden's officially going in! Courtesy of the folks at BDB who are behind the project, some gardening shots in the gallery above. Take a look now, because the price of viewing only goes up from here.
