Cornerstone University STEM Building Indoor Green Walls
Cornerstone University expanded its STEM programs with the addition of the Jack and Mary De Witt Center for Science and Technology. The innovative building uses plants to help to purify the air. A living wall of plants pulls air through the vegetation canopy to the cold air return of the buildings HVAC systems. Two identically sized walls greet students, faculty and visitors on the first and second floors.
The staff of Cornerstone University selected the plants for their indoor green wall. This photograph was taken on the Day of Installation in late fall / early winter of 2018. Both green walls use only 7 gallons of water every 6 days (the equivalent of a 3-1/2 minute shower).
