Growing Australian Urban Cities Green November 20, 2020

A new era of ‘Growing Australian Urban Cities Green’ is here following the announcement of Marcus Constructions’ partnership with Urban Canopee

Aesthetically beautiful, Urban Canopees are modular sculptural furniture structures designed to bring cooler, shadier and more resilient cityscapes.

“Australian cities can expect to see local urban areas sprouting to life, with exquisite modern green plant canopy shade sculptures.  We couldn’t think of a better innovation to decorate our local cityscapes! Not only do the green canopies bring needed shade to hot, built-up civil landscapes, they also help to combat air pollution and attract biodiversity”
