Installation of the living panels along the full length of the tunnel (290 meters) would have the same air-purifying effect as planting approximately 50,000 trees. Imagine the Beech Street Forest!

The research has proven that green walls are very effective in reducing air pollution by capturing the health damaging particulates. The installation of the living panels along the full length of the tunnel (290 meters) would have the same air-purifying effect as planting approximately 50,000 trees. Just imagine the effect of the Beech Street forest! This project constitutes the desperately needed action for tackling the urban air-pollution. It could become a pilot benchmark for successful transformation of urban spaces into healthy places for navigation through, working and living in the post-Covid City. The attached concept would require a further detailed technical design and budget/program development with specialised consultants on board. I am applying for funding to develop the idea further and install the first three test green panels: https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:6a5c7ad8-b63f-4aaa-9c79-55bc52da0f59

What we'll deliver:

  • Installation of three test green panels
  • Technical design, maintenance and budget development

Why it's a great idea:

This project constitutes the desperately needed action for tackling the urban air-pollution and absorbing carbon. We now understand like anytime before the long term impact of air pollution on our health and wellbeing, and the importance of reducing carbon footprint by all available means. The problem of air-pollution is especially critical in the Beech Street tunnel where the level of pollutants is critically high. The proposed solution could become a pilot benchmark project for successful transformation of urban spaces into healthy places for navigation through, working and living in the post-Covid City. The Beech Street is a critical pedestrian link of the City and it has to become an attractive and safe place; my project presents a tool for doing exactly this.
