Great concept – we’re so glad to hear the project is being tested to determine noise, temperature and air pollution impact! From Fast Coexist:
The Living Wall is made by Green Fortune, a Swedish company that specializes in covering vertical surfaces with plants. The Grosvenor wall covers 860 square feet, and is made up of grasses, strawberries, and flowers. Not only does it look a million times better than a scaffolded building, the carpet of greenery may actually improve its surroundings. Arup says that noise pollution from the construction site it cloaks could be reduced by 10 decibels, and the plants could also clean the air.
