The garden is 3.2m high and 6.8m wide comprising of 480 plants. It has a rain sensor at the top of the wall so that the irrigation switches off on rainy days. The plants will continue to grow and cover the supporting structure.
Outcomes of the project include;
•Create a welcoming entry statement to the Civic Centre Building
•Cooling of building façade in summer afternoons (Research and observations in Australia show that green walls reduce wall surface temperature by 10ºC )
•Demonstrate ways to find more green space in non-traditional places.
•Air quality improvement
