The LiveWall System was used in a 2013 ArtPrize entry voted by the public into the Top 25 of the world’s largest art prize, held annually in Grand Rapids, Mich. The piece, Back to Eden by artist Dave MacKenzie, was a 130’ long x 11’ high living canvas containing over 2500 plants. MacKenzie will reenter ArtPrize this fall with a new living work of art outside the B.O.B.
LiveWall is also on several other noteworthy structures, including 800 square feet of green walls on the south and west walls of Grand Rapids’ new Downtown Market. Last fall, John Ball Zoo installed a LiveWall on the rooftop of the chimpanzee house. In Chicago, the system is included as a hallmark of sustainable design at the entrance of the Chicago Center for Green Technology.
The West-Michigan developed and manufactured living wall system was recently selected for the tallest living wall in Los Angeles, which will be installed on the tower of the Downtown PacMutual Complex.
