Nature and human have always coexisted over time. We learned to transform and adapt it to our way and according to our needs. Despite the incredible advances that we have been ableto make within architecture, urban planning, technology, it seems that often the tools used go a little faster than our learning and the way to organize it with our surroundings. Climate change is increasing and being more visible everyday around the world. With this work, it is intended to analyze within examples, one of the multiple methods developed to reduce our impact on the planet. The majority of cities are fairly dense, there is no longer area on the ground for the creation of new green spaces. An alternative was the use of existing spaces, hence the green spaces in horizontal and vertical. Vertical greenery system are taking up more spaces in the city. The progress towards their improvement is considerable, so that in the long term these elements can become sustainable and play a huge role in reducing CO2 in a city. Also help improve the life of the city’s habitant and contribute to the enrichment of the fauna and the flora of the places where they are built.
