Nanjing, People’s Republic of China
To provide system to establish a 1200 sq m green wall along retaining wall
VersiWall® GM (VGM®) modules each contain a geotextile bag filled with a primarily inorganic soil-less lightweight planting media. Pre-planting of the modules 6 to 8 weeks prior to installation in a controlled nursery environment enabled selected green wall plants to be firmly established and orientated vertically. Pilaster mounting rails were bolted directly to the retaining wall to facilitate firm and secure anchorage of the VGM® modules to the wall. Attractive flowing living patterns were created by using the various shades of green, red and orange from the plant palette provided by the selected green wall plants. The otherwise featureless high wall is transformed into a majestic eye-pleasing living wall. The green wall extends a green welcome to commuters, athletes and visitors from around the globe arriving for the Summer Youth Olympic Games 2014 in Nanjing, People’s Republic of China the host city of the Games.
