Living Wall Demonstration

Cityroofs’ Aquadyne living wall system has been installed at the London offices of architects and designers Child Graddon Lewis (CGL). The architects have an internal ‘green team’ exploring various sustainability initiatives. The installation acts as a tool to demonstrate to their clients how the technology works and to illustrate the visual and ecological benefits that living walls can bring to urban environments.
Aquadyne is a lightweight permeable slab manufactured entirely from recycled mixed polymer plastic material using low-energy technology. It has high permeability and flow rates – the same as gravel and ten times that of sand – and no negative environmental impacts through leaching. The Aquadyne acts as both a water attenuation board and a capillary growing medium, with no need for soil. In essence, this means that water passes through the structure, keeping it moist but never saturated.
Cityroofs has developed Aquadyne growing systems for both living walls and roofs. It allows a wide variety of plants to be grown on the boards, then continue to develop successfully after installation, taking water and nutrients from the system without using excessive water. This avoids the system becoming water-logged or filled with deciduous matter.
