Greenwalls, green facade, livingwalls…

  • What are the differences?
  • How do you build them?
  • And how do you maintain these sky-high plants?
  • Are green walls sustainable?
  • Can you grow food on them?
  • Is vertical greening the urban landscape of the future?

In July 2009, Stephanie Gautama sets out on a journey to discover the answers of these questions. Sponsored by the Dreer Award, her 8-month’s research took her to meetings and internships in Zürich, Stockholm, Paris, Münich, Sydney, Melbourne and Singapore, with researchers, designers and entrepreneurs of the growing vertical greening industry.

On this occasion, she returns to Cornell to share her findings. Horticulturists, landscape architects, planners and architects interested in incorporating vertical greenery into their projects should not miss this event!
