The Musée du quai Branly in Paris has an interesting "living wall" feature.

Quai Branly opened on June 23, 2006, located on land near the Eiffel Tower.

The building was designed by architect Jean Nouvel. The "living wall" (200m long by 12m tall) on part of the exterior of the museum was designed and planted by Gilles Clément and Patrick Blanc.

The "living wall" at installation was quite healthy and vibrant, however, over time, the inadequate support system for the plants roots, irrigation and drainage have become visually evident. The museum complex contains several buildings, as well as a mediatheque and a garden.
