French architect Jean Nouvel teamed up with botanist Patrick Blanc to create this pair of plant-covered Sydney towers that reflect light into their lower levels with a huge cantilevered panel of mirrors. Named One Central Park, the complex is the centrepiece of a AUS$2 billion masterplan in downtown Sydney.The building's facade features one of the tallest green walls in the world- spanning over 1,000 square-metres, the 21 plant-covered panels are made up of 35 different species.
