    The project cost $810 million to build, really does have the wow factor, taking up the space the size of 177 football fields and housing 80 percent of the world's plant species. This is not your mother's garden.

    The skyline of the city has been altered with 18 giant structures dubbed "supertrees." These vertical gardens are as tall as 55 meters, and are equipped with solar panels and a rainwater catchment system.
