Buidings are planted many green trees, harmonious association of plants and concrete. Hanging Garden of Babylon was probably the first green building. This were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.Traditionally they were said to have been built in the ancient city of Babylon, near present-day Hillah, Babil province, in Iraq.
According to one legend, Nebuchadnezzar II built the Hanging Gardens for his Median wife, Queen Amytis, because she missed the green hills and valleys of her homeland. He also built a grand palace that came to be known as 'The Marvel of the Mankind'.
There were many sketchs of Babylon, however nobody can know its exactly shape.

Ripe tomatoes hang from conference room ceilings, rice paddies grow waist-high in the lobby, and a living facade of flowers and orange trees covers the expanse of the building's exterior. There's no shortage of agricultural variety around the Pasona office building, located in downtown Tokyo, Japan. In total, over 200 species of fruits, vegetables, and rice live within Pasona, including lemons, broccoli, salad greens, berries, squash, eggplant, and passion fruit.

The block, in Central Park, Sydney, is home to the world's tallest 'vertical garden' - a living tapestry of plants, flowers and vines stretching 500ft high.
The two dozen green wall panels that cover the building, some as high as 16-storeys, have been filled with over 100,000 plants.
