Created by the Young Architects Boston Group, Parti Wall, Hanging Green is a panelized system for greening up an otherwise blank brick wall. The prototype is made of planted panels supported on a cable grid.

The project aims to "generate awareness for underutilized sites in Boston and to offer design solutions that apply sustainable principles for improving public space and creating healthy neighborhoods in the city." Installed just in time for the 2008 American Institute of Architects conference in Boston, this prototype will allow the YABG to experiment with different plant types in this application over a period of time. Hopefully it spurs more projects like this in lots of cities.
