ROSE HULMAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY — TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA

ROSE HULMAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY — TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA

Over winter break at the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology, a vibrant green wall was installed in the newly expanded Hulman Memorial Student Union. The school wanted to welcome the students back to the Union with a dynamic and lively green wall. They accomplished this with 1,458 plants placed in a curvilinear form to represent movement and life.

 

“I must admit, I was skeptical about a living wall when we first started discussing it from a maintenance perspective.  I couldn’t have been more wrong and the design is just amazing.  Really catches your eye as you enter our new main entrance. What a beautiful system with benefits that keep giving over time.” – Michael A. Taylor, MSM, CEFP  |  Senior Director Facilities Operations for Rose Hulman
