Nestled in the Brandywine Valley of southeast Pennsylvania, Longwood Gardens is one of North America’s foremost botanical gardens. The world-famous horticulture showplace set out to make a bold statement by choosing to add a history-making green wall to the interior expansion of their East Conservatory. Designed landscape architect, Kim Wilke, and installed by Ambius’ Special Projects team led by Denise Eichmann, the 4,072 sq ft green wall at Longwood Gardens surpassed the previous longest green wall in North America by 1,210 sq ft.
For her work, Denise Eichmann was lauded at the 2011 PIA Awards for the Longwood green wall, winning the annual industry gala’s best-in-show honor, the Judge’s Award. Scroll through this photo gallery of photos of the green wall to appreciate the true singular nature of the project.
