Metal plays a large role in the architectural style of the modern age. This concerns not only load-bearing elements like supports etc.; arbors, stairs, and whole facades are also erected from cable or bar constructions. It seems reasonable to use these components for high growing walls for plants also. Such constructions are sometimes even planned as additional wall faces only for green planting from time to time. Here we cover its history and provide some examples. You can find similar pictures under "balconies", "car parking lots" and "high greening."
For centuries high growing constructions have been taken advantage of in farming to cultivate beer Hops. Perhaps the idea of instituting such growing walls as component part of architecture arose from it. The impetus for such projects was the 'MFO-Park' in Örlikon / Switzerland After the demolition of an old machine factory was planned there to transform the area into a recreational park. The contours of the old factory buildings were imitated by structural steel and planted with vigorous climbing varieties. The plants should conquer the metal lattices and convert the empty, airy zones to a green jungle. The project receives attention to this day and has served many architects as an example.
With material from FassadenGrün you can create a small, curtained climber wall or simple cable networks. Very high climber walls work best in courtyards, because there the plants thrive better and are sheltered.The location plays a big role. It is advisable for the climbing construction to include the structural engineer early on in the planning. In turn, the big manufacturers of metal lattices or the wire-cable factories and ("suppliers ") can recommend from their experience, modules that may reduce costs. If plants are put in pails or buckets, the planning must be even more careful around the automatic eutrophication aspect to guarantee correct irrigation, etc.
