Elmich VersiWall® GM Green Wall, a living visual treat at the Nanjing South Railway Station, People’s Republic of China.
Adorning the entire length of a prominent high retaining wall near the station, the majestic VGM® Green Wall is part of efforts to beautify the station ahead of the second Summer Youth Olympic Games, to be held in August 2014 in Nanjing. The Nanjing South Railway Station serves four major high-speed railway lines and a network of other railway lines traversing China. It is the world’s second largest railway station in terms of GFA (Gross Floor Area) at 458,000 square metres (4,929,871 square feet) with 28 railway platforms. Complementing solar panels capable of providing 7.17 megawatt of electricity which cover majority of the railway station roof, the VGM® Green Wall covering 1,200 square metres of the retaining wall is a bold statement in sustainability and sends a welcome “green” message to international athletes and visitors arriving for the Summer Youth Olympic Games 2014.
