From Place de Catalogne, la Tour suddenly came into view.  When you look at this historical structure, can you imagine it clothed in green plants?  There is a company "Ginger" which is proposing to drape the tower with a mantle of 600,000 plants.  The story was leaked in Le Figaro, that there would be 12 tons of tubing attached to the tower's struts.  "Thousands of hemp or sack-cloth bags would carry soil and a large variety of plants would be added gradually over the second half of 2012." 

Can you imagine la Tour covered in living plants from head to toe?
