The new Monroe County Parking Garage in Bloomington, Ind., is coming to life.
The structure features a LiveWall, a sustainable, durable and low-maintenance living wall system, that fills five of the parking structure’s window openings with a variety of plants that bloom in shades of yellow, red, pink, purple and green, according to a release.
“The idea was to break up the otherwise stark exterior of the six-story parking garage with an interesting and visually appealing element, achieved by incorporating some green design,” said Stephen Andoh, the project architect.
LiveWall installed window boxes into the windows of the parking garage. The green wall features a total of 180 plants in a variety of seven annuals.
The window openings in the parking garage measure 8 feet long by 6 feet tall.
