The Event

Living (green) wall installations emerged on the commercial market in the past two decades and have rapidly become a prominent architectural feature in many cities. Much emphasis in research has been placed on the potential of these systems to increase buildings thermal efficiency, improve urban air quality, attenuate nuisance noise and provide habitats for wildlife. These benefits would be expected to contribute urban resilience to climate change in addition to the main aesthetic purpose of green walls. The systems are potentially also a restorative solution for densely built urban areas with limited access to conventional green space. Urban green infrastructure with such socio-ecological aspiration would provide benefits for public health and economic regeneration that are potentially immense.
