Caroline Brahme’s award-winning ‘Grey to Green’ is a series of paving stones that can “host vegetation”. The goal is to integrate more greenery in the urban fabric, transition away from grey concrete to green vegetation, for as Brahme points out, “cities depend on nature’s ecosystem to function properly.”

“In the future we must find new ways to integrate green structure into the cities more efficiently. The aim is to build dense, green and sustainable.” says Brahme. Grey to Green paving stones allow for customization and integration of greenery on the paved urban floor.
