January 23, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton Photo: Future Growing After traveling a lot for the majority of my career, airport delays are usually not something I get excited about. Photo: LaManda Joy Set in a seemingly unused nook of the G Terminal, a mezzanine space has been transformed into a high-tech urban garden. Photo: Future Growing The genius behind the O’Hare installation is Future Growing LLC, the same company responsible for the amazing rooftop garden that fuels the kitchens of New York City restaurant, Bell, Book and Candle, where I dined on a recent visit to that city. A series of vertical PVC towers with high-powered (“wear your sunglasses” high-powered) lights grow a variety of herbs, greens, edible flowers and a few tomato plants. Edible flowers on one tower, and on the other, lettuce ready to package for the airports restaurants. Water receptacles under the towers house pumps that manage recirculation of water and nutrients.

What are Living Walls? Definition of Green Wall and Vertical Garden L iving walls or green walls are self sufficient vertical gardens that are attached to the exterior or interior of a building. They differ from green façades (e.g. ivy walls) in that the plants root in a structural support which is fastened to the wall itself. The plants receive water and nutrients from within the vertical support instead of from the ground. The Green over Grey™ living wall system is different than others on the market today. Diversity is the key and by utilizing hundreds of different types of plants we create striking patterns and unique designs. Living walls are also referred to as green walls, vertical gardens or in French, mur végétal. Our system consists of a frame, waterproof panels, an automatic irrigation system, special materials, lights when needed and of course plants. Our green walls are low maintenance thanks to an automatic irrigation system. A material is used which evenly distributes moisture and nutrients to the plants.
