"The Cultivated Facade" - Check out Architectural Record's recent green wall article


Green walls are gaining in popularity across the globe.  In this article, journalist Peter Fairley explores different types of green walls and how architects are incorporating them into their designs.  Examples of green walls from Singapore, Malaysia, and London are discussed.

The article also features our own stormwater green wall at the Expo Center in North Portland. The Expo green wall is unique because it manages rain runoff from the roof of the adjacent building.  Next time you’re at Expo, check out the green wall, and in the meantime, read more about it here.
