Gardens inside buildings represent a sustainable vehicle for a host of ecological and economic advantages. Factors such as improving the indoor climate and the workplace situation and hence increasing quality of life are the critical parameters of this very special design task. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the planning and implementation of this special kind of garden, taking the concrete planning process as its guide. From design fundamentals and concept development with different typology variants all the way to the choice of materials, the various construction principles, and building services, all subjects relevant to planning are comprehensively presented.

The planning information is illustrated with numerous international examples, with projects ranging from a "green wall" as interior design element and private house gardens in Australia, New Zealand, and Germany all the way to award-winning ecological offi ce buildings in the USA and the Netherlands, an old-age home in Sweden, and an indoor park in Canada.
