Welcome to The Green Wall & Green Roof Source
On September 28, a more than two thousand square-foot exterior G-O2TM Living Wall was unveiled on the building façade of One East Pratt Street in Baltimore, making it the largest living wall in Maryland.
The G-O2TM Living Wall has some important features that will help advance the success of living architecture, including the use of a unique, cutting edge, remote monitoring system. This technology was first installed in another very large iconic living wall in Pittsburgh during a complete overhaul in May of 2012 that included an upgraded G-O2TM Living Wall system, irrigation system, and state-of-the-art remote monitoring sensors provided by Plant Connection, Inc.
This valuable data recorded in two of the largest exterior living walls in the United States will be studied and used to help inform and further advance the greater green wall industry as a whole.
Plant Connection had the wonderful privilege and honor to create a living wall at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, Jerome L. Greene Family Center in Manhattan.
Hope Lodge wanted to expand on their outdoor terrace and provide guests the opportunity to connect with nature for therapeutic benefits. They felt the addition of a G-O2TM Living Wall would enhance the space and further aid in creating a peaceful communal area.
Thanks to their generous support, PNC sponsored the living wall, drawing inspiration from their iconic design at PNC Bank in Pittsburgh, PA. The PNC green wall planting design was originally created by Kari Elwell Katzander of Mingo Design.
G-O2TM Living Walls were used to help make the DENR building the "greenest" complex in Raleigh. The green walls represent one of many components of the Green Square Complex that illustrate the most current sustainable design strategies.
The living walls were designed to be “multidimensional,” meaning they wrap around the wall sides. It is hoped that the Green Square Complex will serve as a national model of environmental efficiency and sustainability.
One block from the Freedom Tower, Plant Connection installed a 32' x 60' interior G-O2TM green wall for BNY Mellon. Plant Connection's green wall designer, Sabrina Buttitta, BSLA, designed an “organic tapestry” of plants to balance the magnitude of the 33-story corporate atrium.
The 1,920 SF living wall is home to 11,673 plants and contains a 12-zone irrigation system with a remote monitoring system to optimize the health of the plants. Plant Connection's president, Anthony Caggiano, and vice president, Melissa Daniels, work closely consulting the maintenance company, and at any minute, know the status of the wall's health.
Studies have shown that buildings strategically placing and promoting access to vegetation have been documented as having a greater positive human health impact than those without. The living wall at BNY Mellon adds to the list of metropolitan areas with green walls that are greatly impacting the urban landscape and alleviating sick building syndrome.
Plant Connection designed a G-O2TM Living Wall for Applebee's, incorporating the apple logo into the planting scheme.
