Calendar Project of the Month

Morzine Aquatics Center (Espace Aquatique de Morzine)

July: Morzine Aquatics Center (Espace Aquatique de Morzine) by Vegetal iD and more...

Located in an exceptional natural environment within the French Alps, one of the priorities of the architects for the Morzine Aquatics Center was to integrate this massive and very visible building within its surroundings. Covered with fully pre-grown vegetated HYDROPACK® modules, the green roof blends into the landscape offering a beautiful "fifth façade" view for pedestrians who use the bridge overlooking the building. The "MIX-FLORE Aroma" Plant mix of perennials and sedum plants include Dianthus carthusianorum, Dianthus deltoides, Festuca glauca, and Sedum hybridum, among other varieties.
