Largest Living Wall in the United States

Oct 31, 2011

Wowzers! And I thought my living wall was large.

Drexel University just completed the installation of the largest known active living wall in the United States. And when we say large, we are not kidding. The wall spans 1570-plus square feet and is located in the new Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

NEDLAW Living Walls designed the living wall in collaboration with Toronto-based Diamond and Schmitt Architects as part of the sustainable design features surrounding the Papadakis building.

According to Dr. Donna Murasko, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Drexel University, “The living wall not only improves the overall learning environment, but also creates an opportunity for further research into even higher quality living walls in the future.”

We understand that it isn’t easy building a 1570-plus square foot living wall in a home, but how awesome would it be if we all can? However, it is extremely easy to create a smaller living wall using Woolly Pocket. And if you decide to change your environment with a Wally we’d love to hear about it.
