The Living green walls are panels of plants, grown vertically using hydroponics, on structures that can be either free-standing or attached to walls. Living green walls are also referred to as vertical gardens, green walls, living walls or ecowalls.
When and where was the living green wall invented?


This amazing idea for living green walls was first patented by Stanley Hart White in 1938, however it is Patrick Blanc’s name that resounds through the industry. After creating one of the most famous green walls at the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris, he was designated the godfather of the ‘vegetal wall’, sparking a revolution in sustainable architecture. 


As the concrete jungles expand around the globe and pollution increases, the application of living green walls are a asset to help create balance between men and forests. Incorporating carefully chosen selections of plants into cutting edge design, living green walls have been devised to help restore the natural balance.

Benefits of Vertical Gardens

Vertical Gardens offer economic, environmental and physiological benefits:
Building Profile & Beautification
Air Quality

Biodiversity & Habitat

Acoustic Buffering

Biophilic Design and Our Health

Green walls are organized into panel and tray systems or freestanding walls, meaning there is a wall suitable for any space.

Panel systems, like Sage and Prowall, have plants pre-grown into the panels and can be used inside or out, and in any climate.

VersaWall is a tray system, which is popular for indoor displays. Plants are pre-grown off-site and inserted into the wall, which offers a great degree of versatility that can be exploited to cover entire surfaces or designed as living art.

Freestanding walls are most commonly used indoors and are most easily changed, either by changing the location or changing the plants.




A recent study into the effectiveness of green infrastructure for improving air quality in urban street canons (the gaps between large buildings), found living green walls can have a big impact. These gaps are hotspots for harmful pollutants, such as nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter, but living green walls have been shown to reduce levels by 40% and 60% respectively.

Plants have long been used to reduce noise levels on freeways and other noisy roadways across North America and Europe. Living green walls expand on this idea. Vegetation naturally blocks high frequency sounds while the supporting structure can help to diminish low-frequency noise.

Exterior living walls give buildings protection, not just from temperature fluctuations but also by diverting water away from walls during heavy rain and providing protection from UV radiation.


Where Vertical Gardens are Used

Living walls are exceptionally versatile. They can be attached to virtually any vertical structure, old or new. They can also be free-standing space dividers, providing beauty, sound-proofing and security. Typical uses include:

Exteriors + Interiors

Retail + Office Environments

Residential Projects

Industrial Buildings

Tennis Courts and Golf Courses

Stadiums and Arenas

Hotels and Restaurants

Schools and Hospitals

Highway Improvements

Parking Structures

Living Tapestrys on Walls

Fencing

Roof Top Gardens

Creating Enclosures

Security

Privacy Screening

Graffiti Protection

Vertical Forest Residential Towers in Milan

Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) is a pair of residential towers in the Porta Nuova district of Milan, Italy, between Via Gaetano de Castillia and Via Federico Confalonieri near Milano Porta Garibaldi railway station. They have a height of 111 metres (364 ft) and 76 metres (249 ft) and will host more than 900 trees (approximately 550 and 350 trees in the first and second towers respectively) on 8,900 square metres (96,000 sq ft) of terraces. Within the complex is also an 11-story office building; its facade does not host plants.



First Vertical Forests to Be Planted in Nanjing

A group of Italian architects is set to construct the first vertical forest in Nanjing.

The vertical forest design was an innovation of an Italian architecture firm, Stefano Boeri Architetti. The Nanjing Green Towers are two multi-rise buildings that will be constructed in the Pukuo District.

Boeri made similar designs in Milan, Italy, and Lausanne, Switzerland.

Vertical forests are buildings that are designed to house thousands of trees and shrubs on the structures’ exterior. The design that was made for the Nanjing Green Towers will have trees on the buildings’ uppermost deck.
The Nanjing Green Towers will be completed by 2018. Future projects will be implemented in other Chinese cities such as Shijiazhuang, Liuzhou, Guizhou, Shanghai and Chongqing.

The eco-friendly project set in Guizhou will be a forest hotel located in 400 acres of rolling hills. The hotel will have a gym, a lounge, bar, a restaurant and a VIP area.

Stefano Boeri Architetti is bringing the vertical forest concept popularized in Milan to Nanjing, China with the Nanjing Towers. The two green towers could provide the city with a breath of fresh air, producing around 132 pounds of oxygen every day as they absorb carbon dioxide. They’ll accomplish this air-cleaning feat with 1,100 flourishing trees from 23 local species and 2,500 cascading shrubs and plants.

The two towers at 656 feet and 354 feet tall will rise above the Nanjing Pukou District, which Stefano Boeri Architetti’s press release describes as an area that will likely lead modernization efforts in the south of China’s Jiangsu province and help develop a Yangtze River economic zone. Nanjing Yang Zi State-owned Investment Group Company Limited is promoting the towers and is listed by Stefano Boeri Architetti as an investor in the project.


The taller tower will hold offices, a museum, a green architecture school, and a rooftop club. The second tower will host a 247-room Hyatt hotel and rooftop swimming pool. A podium 65 feet high will include shops, restaurants, and a conference hall. Balconies on the buildings will allow inhabitants to get up close to the nature thriving on the building facades.

600 tall trees and 500 medium-sized trees will grow on the towers, and Stefano Boeri Architetti says the trees and cascading plants will help regenerate biodiversity in the area.




Aston Martin Residences has released a new set of renderings for their building whose design was inspired by an Aston Martin DB11. They are making it clear that this partnership is in fact a complete partnership, not just a licensing agreement.


The interiors of the building will have the same lighting scheme, design and feel of the interiors of their signature hand-made car. 

The same jeweler who places the Aston Martin logo on the hood of the cars will be the jeweler who places the unit numbers on the residence doors. 




G&G purchased the Vulcan, one of 24 in the world, and will keep it in the three-story sales center. Other features include a custom-made carbon fiber desk, leather door handles and Eames chairs. Aston Martin will have its hands on everything from the leather stitching to “how we design the ramp that goes up to the parking,” Marek Reichman, executive vice president and chief creative officer of Aston Martin, said. The development team declined to provide a buildout cost for the sales center.

Units range from $600,000 to $50 million for the penthouse, and from 700 square feet to 19,000 square feet.
