The living 4 wall panels that were growing at Snidle Gallery in San Francisco were transported to the Saint Regis Hotel 5 blocks away to be displayed for the Sustainable Industries Forum. The mature living wall has been growing for 9 months. The 30 pound panels were supported by pipe frames to create a living backdrop for Buro Happold Consulting Engineers. After the one day exhibition the panels were returned to the sunny windows of the gallery.
