University Campus Living Walls

This Vertical Living Wall is the Entrance to a UT Austin Building

— November 24, 2016 — Art & Design
Created in collaboration with the Lady Johnson Wildflower Center, this vertical living wall is installed at The School of Architecture at the University of Texas in Austin. Situated on the north side of the campus, the living wall consists of a honeycomb-inspired design that ensures all plants are able to flourish within their own spaces.

Aside from housing plants, the living wall also acts as an artificial habitat for local wildlife including Anole lizards, butterflies and birds. Although strikingly beautiful to admire, the vertical living wall also acts as a great addition to the building's design. It helps to reduce noise and even helps to keep the interior of the building cool during the hot summer months.
Trend Themes
1. Vertical Living Walls - The trend of creating vertical living walls is growing as people seek out more sustainable and visually appealing ways to bring greenery into their living spaces.
2. Honeycomb-inspired Design - As we look for new ways to house plants in urban environments, designers are turning to nature for inspiration in the creation of honeycomb-inspired designs.
3. Artificial Habitats for Wildlife - As more buildings incorporate vertical living walls, there is an opportunity to create artificial habitats for local wildlife, thus supporting biodiversity in urban areas.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - Architects and designers are poised to capitalize on the trend of creating vertical living walls in their buildings, enhancing both the beauty and sustainability of their projects.
2. Landscaping - The demand for living walls provides an opportunity for landscapers and gardeners to expand their services, offering both residential and commercial vertical greenery solutions.
3. Wildlife Conservation - With the integration of living walls into urban areas, wildlife conservation organizations can work with building owners to create artificial habitats for local animals, promoting biodiversity and supporting the environment.
