On Wednesday October 10th 2012, the City of Antwerp organises a breakfast session on Green Walls.

Green Walls are of great value in urban areas where traditional green facilities are hard to be found. Green walls reduce the urban heat island effect and their air filtering potential is a lot bigger than is known in general. In the near future green walls will become more part of the urban landscape.

If you want to understand how a green wall can intensify your design, come to the breakfast session for architects at the Ecohuis in Antwerp on October 10th. During this session architects from VenhoevenCS architecture+urbanism and Lüchinger Architects will bring inspiring study cases. Producers of different green wall systems show you the possibilities from low-cost to hi-end.
