How to Specify a Living Green Wall

Start Date
End Date
Living green walls are beautiful architectural elements that provide research-documented benefits to building occupants, including those associated with biophilic design such as increased well-being, productivity, and accelerated recovery from stress. This course discusses those benefits and identifies factors that need to be considered by building ownership and design teams during the design process. This course also identifies the specific roles of the design team members critical to the success of a wall’s performance and sustainability, critical specification considerations, and budget considerations. The course concludes with case studies of a variety of exterior and interior living wall systems.
