4 Parking Garages Incorporating a Green Wall

Parking garages are critical components of urban design, but they don’t have to be all function and no fashion. Today’s architects are elevating the design of modern parking structures by balancing structural soundness, sustainability, and aesthetics, and incorporating a variety of natural elements.

More Jungle, Less Concrete

Most of us don’t give a second thought to where we park our cars when we go shopping or to the doctor or to work. But parking structures are a crucial component of community planning. Without them, our city streets would be even more congested, and accessibility to retail, offices and other buildings would be limited. Parking garages afford us multistory spaces that free up our common areas and make our cities more enjoyable.

Adding Delight to the Dull

Installing a green wall onto a concrete structure brings life to an otherwise mundane piece of architecture. Living walls improve the style of the framework while reducing noise and air pollution.

Biophilia in Design

Another great aspect of this green trend in parking garages is Biophilia. Scientifically speaking, humans are attracted to nature. Biophilia is a philosophy that refers to mankind’s biological connections to the natural world around us. Biophilic design takes this concept into the architectural realm, placing deep emphasis on incorporating the natural world into the environments we build. Decorative living walls and green spaces like GSky delivers are deeply rooted in biophilic design, bringing beauty and well-being to what might otherwise be rigid, concrete gray cityscapes.
