The vegetation wall was installed in a multi-purpose building late last summer and is located just steps from Odawara Station. The first floor encompasses a clinic and pharmacy and the upper floors are used for offices. I love the organic look-and-feel of the façade which, according to the architects, was achieved by using decayed styrene foam. The all-inclusive system includes a watering hose rigged throughout the façade, air ventilation, as well as piping that can deliver rain water to the aluminum die-cast planters.
