Learn how green roofs and living wall installations for indoor and outdoor applications are implemented to create various environmental benefits on a built structure. Best practices and objectives focus on:
Landscape architects are working on increasingly complex sites with layered site histories and foundations. This session explores designed plant communities from eco-modeling of native communities to embracing spontaneous species. Recent works by Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, P. Clifford Miller Landscape Artistry, and Stephen Stimson Associates will be examined.
Learn from a site’s story to understand how natural and cultural histories impact their developments.
Examine the value of native to spontaneous plant communities to address complex site conditions.
Review the challenges of plant establishment on virgin sites to green roofs.
Explore the challenges of maintenance and long term resilience of designed plant communities.
This study of green living wall case studies reveals several product installations and results for indoor and outdoor applications in various climates. Project analyses will include detailed design criteria, costs, installation details, plant selection, maintenance, and challenges and solutions. Photos and time-lapse videos will enhance and highlight the project presentations.
