B3 Hotels are a Colombian-born brand of select service hotels located in key markets throughout
 the country for the budget conscious business traveler.

Completed on March 1, 2012, more than 25,000 plants representing 55 different species cover
400m2 and 8 floors of the Hotel Gaia-B3 wall in Bogotα, Colombia. The project involved much
 research and planning; design through implementation took approximately two and a half months.
As always, prior investigation of appropriate plants was conducted by the Spanish firm Paisajismo
Urbano in local tropical forest jungles, resulting in 40% of the plants used were local natives.

The hydroponic system will allow local species to self-pollinate, which will add to its already
high biodiversity. And, as in all of Paisajismo Urbano's work, the Vertical Ecosystem also
 carries biological nutrients and pest repellent which is recycled through the remotely
controlled irrigation system.

To the delight of its owners, the Hotel Gaia-B3 vertical garden has become quite popular
in Bogotα and has turned into its own tourist attraction. This magnificent vertical garden
 was implemented thanks to Paisajismo Urbano's new partner and distributor, GRONCOL, in Bogotα.

Paisajismo Urbano, with a responsibility towards the conservation of native plants,
 began to collaborate with different official entities and botanical gardens in 2011.

"Our intention is that our vertical ecosystems make ever more use of native plants,
principally plants which grow on walls and mountain slopes, with the intention of
improving the biodiversity of the botanical market, seeing as this market is getting
ever smaller due to commercial interests.

"Paisajismo Urbano is establishing a collaboration agreement with different official entities
and botanical gardens, who are helping us with the identification, sampling and propagation
of native species in the different countries we visit with the intention that in the near future
we will be able to make our vertical ecosystems with 90% native plants due to the collaboration
and support of scientific studies," states Ignacio Solano, founder of Paisajismo Urbano.
