The green wall has an L-shaped design, with the long leg of the L stretching 74', and the shorter leg 31', each with a portal. The larger portal (left) stands 10' by 10'. The smaller portal is 8.5' wide by 10' tall. The green wall extends over the portals, and at its highest point reaches up 12 feet. Plant selection for the wall focused on specimens that could handle heat and humidity, nonblooming plants like Mondo grass, Mexican heather and Silverdust Dusty Miller Maritima. Other selections were Compact Sprenger asparagus fern and Ruellia dwarf white. Ribbons of annuals (yellow lantana, foreground) sweep the groundplane. January 2017 45
