The technology of façade greening is well known in Germany. There has been FLL Guidelines since 2000. The focus for a long time was only on climbers. Now a new debate has begun to include more sophisticated plant species; green walls. Green walls collect fine particles and dust in urban areas. Green wall technology is improving rapidly.
The next frontiers is indoor walls as a huge opportunity for amenity space creation. Living walls systems can help to purify indoor air in private and public areas. The full documentation (in German), can be downloaded on the FBB webpage.
