I am very appreciative to receive weekly newsletters of the DIRT ASLA blog (web at: dirt.asla.org ). From their site I copy this to explain you what they do: The Dirt TM blog covers the latest news on the built and natural environments and features stories on landscape architecture. Published weekly, The Dirt explores design and policy developments related to land and water use, urbanization, transportation, and climate change.
In their last newsletter they wrote about three books on designing resilient cities. One of these , the Hidden Potential of Sustainable Neighborhoods, (amazon link) show in the cover page a beautiful image of a smart city with green walls, green roofs, green railroads, green sidewalks, and also a green structure that we can recognize as a treatment wetlands system. If you read the DIRT summary you can see that each of the examples in the book are actually built.

The treatment wetland that is present in the cover page and that is explained in the book is the "Living Machine" (TM) technology. this is a really interesting system developed in USA.
Take a look on what they have done in San Francisco. sooooo coooooollllllll.
