Genoves Park,

The installation of a vertical garden in Genovés Park in Cádiz marks a new chapter in the evolution of this emblematic green space. This park, located next to the historic center and surrounded by the old city walls, has been a botanical haven since its transformation in the 18th century and its subsequent expansion in the 19th century under the direction of the gardener Eduardo Genovés y Puig.

The vertical garden introduces a modern and sustainable dimension to the park. It consists of a structure that allows the vertical growth of plants, optimizing the space and creating a striking green wall that adds biodiversity and beauty. This type of installation not only improves the aesthetics of the park, but also contributes to the improvement of air quality and provides a new habitat for various species of flora and fauna.

This project has been designed with the intention of harmonizing with the park’s historic and natural surroundings, ensuring that the integration of the vertical garden complements the rich history and botanical design that characterize Parque Genovés. This new element is a testament to the city’s ongoing commitment to ecological innovation and environmental education.


Due to its location, the main challenge of this project was to propose a vegetation that was resistant to sea spray and storms that hit the coast of Cadiz during the winter, since the wall where the garden is located is only protected from the sea breeze by a two-storey building.
