Unveiling of the Plant Wall at Arts Campus

Time Wednesday 31 May, 2023 at 12:15 - 12:45
Place Arts Campus

The plant wall is a vertical plant wall that stretches over several floors and is placed in a common area where students and visitors can enjoy the green environment. The plant wall withered and was removed, but is now about to be reborn. The project is the result of a collaboration between students from the University of Design (UID Climate Group), the Department of Molecular Biology, the Umeå Center for Microbial Research (UCMR), the Swedish University of Agriculture (SLU), the Faculty of Forestry, the Institute for Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology, Umeå, Forest Master's School, Skinnskatteberg and Vertisà Umeå.

The purpose of the wall is to create a feeling of calm and inspire creativity and reflection. The idea is that it should integrate nature and design into an urban environment. The installation now consists of a large number of plants that have been carefully selected to thrive indoors. The plants contribute to improving air quality and creating a more pleasant environment for everyone staying on the Arts campus.

By creating an innovative and aesthetically pleasing plant wall, those involved hope to improve the work and study environment for students and staff.
