Mehak, surely a "Buddhist theme park" is a contradiction in terms, given that the essence of Buddhism is the exact opposite of commercialism?

As regards vertical vegetation on a skyscraper, do remember that the speed of wind on land is only slowed by the obstacles on the ground such as trees, buildings, etc. Therefore, the higher you plant things on a skyscraper the faster and more forceful the wind becomes and so plants would need to be adapted to such extreme conditions.
