GREEN WALLS ABROAD

Element - - Special Report -

In Canada, green walls are now find­ing their way into hos­pi­tals — how­ever, as well as im­prov­ing in­door air qual­ity, gar­dens that scale out­side walls are in­creas­ingly ap­pear­ing in dense cities with lit­tle greenspace. Green­wall is cur­rently work­ing on cov­er­ing the en­tire outer shell of a large build­ing in Kuala Lumpur in or­der to rein­tro­duce the nat­u­ral habi­tat of na­tive but­ter ies to the city. Ed­i­ble land­scapes and ver­ti­cal farms are yet an­other ap­pli­ca­tion. In LA’s Skid Row, Ur­ban Farm­ing cre­ated the “Food Chain” pi­lot project, which can grow 4,000 plants hang­ing on four neigh­bour­hood walls.
