Performative Envelope Lab

One of the projects highlighted in the Performative Envelope Lab research is the Leamouth Peninsula Building N in London. Tight, urban site conditions limit the amount of greenspace on the site, so the architects looked to include vegetation in vertical garden façades overlayed on reinforced-concrete walls on each of the four faces of the building.
