Whole Foods approached GSky to install this wall after the success of GSky’s hanging, double-sided 17′ x 10′ Green Wall installation in their flagship store in Austin, Texas. At the Vancouver store, GSky installed a colorful wall of native plants such as huckleberry, euonymus, mondo grass, gaultheria and licorice fern, which embellish the north-facing wall of the building.
Today, this Whole Foods store routinely holds product demonstrations and media interviews in front of the Green Wall to build a positive brand image. Other tenants of the building, such as the City of Vancouver, also use the Green Wall as a backdrop while on television. For example, the City of Vancouver held press conferences and interviews in front of the Green Wall during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
