  • Considerations for Advanced Green Façade Design


    Green facade technology has evolved into a viable design component that can provide multiple benefits and aesthetic value to a wide variety of project types.

This paper draws on 18 years of collected knowledge, observation, implementation, and experimentation to describe successful strategies that include system selection, design, plant selection, maintenance and client/owner education.
