For the covering of the outer shell of the power plant we propose to use the growth of the living matter as a base in a grid of recycled polypropylene pallets, measuring five by ten feet and three inches thick. Each one has a structural box girder at the base containing the necessary subsoil to help the plants grow, attached mechanically to the reinforced concrete walls of the power station. In order to facilitate pruning and upkeep by the gardeners a perimeter pathway is cleared between the shell and the walls.
