Vertical gardens and green walls are beautiful and environmentally friendly means of adding a little life to architecture – but until now, most required structural foundations to help attach the plants and soil to the building. Now, a group of researchers led by Antonio Aguado, Ignacio Segura, and Sandra Manso at the Structural Technology Group of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya has developed a new multilayer concrete that is able to support plant life. Both a medium for growth and a construction material, the system allows for thermal regulation and CO2 sequestration.
