Living Wall, Science Central, Newcastle

The 27m-high green construction has been installed onto the side of The Core, the first building on the 24-acre Science Central development in Newcastle, creating a vertical garden of ivies, seagrass, thyme, primulas, euphorbia and nesting boxes.

The wall forms part of plans by Newcastle Science City, the partnership responsible for delivering Science Central, to create a world-leading example of urban sustainability, to attract leading organisations to locate in the region.

Measuring 366sq m in area and containing more than 35,000 plants, the wall was designed, engineered and installed in conjunction with Newcastle architect Faulkner Brown; landscape architect Land Use Consultants; living wall experts ANS Group Europe; engineers Mott MacDonald; and building contractor Sir Robert MacAlpine.
