Planter Bricks are bricks with small containers built on the outer edges that can hold plants and vegetation. According to Exit Gallery, “The planter brick curtain wall is designed to combine traditional masonry units with units that can hold plants and vegetation.” The concept is an interesting one – you can take an old, traditionally built building, retrofit it with a frame and attach a Planter Brick curtain filled with small plants. And like that, a curtain of green is covering your building. The retrofit frame also consists of a drip irrigation line built into the wall. This photo shows an artist’s rendering of a building with a wall of Planter Bricks, and below is a small Planter Brick.
