Howlett Hall Living Wall

 

 

The Howlett Hall Living Wall installation is a collaboration between Urban Blooms and The OSU Student Organization SEEDS.  A sustainability study will be conducted by taking temperature readings on the south facing brick facade, both behind the living wall and on the brick adjacent to the wall. With data from this study it will be possible to calculate the energy saving potential of living walls in both summer and winter months.
