G-O2™ Creates Resource Display
at the Chicago CGT


The Chicago Center for Green Technology (CCGT) was established to provide a resource for the City of Chicago, and demonstrate ways to live sustainably at home, in the workplace, and with communities, while enhancing the quality of urban life. In both the center and the outdoor exhibition area, visitors can learn many practices and technologies that improve the environment and promote a greener lifestyle. 

Plant Connection was asked to participate in the demonstration gardens and display their G-O2TM Living Wall System. The CCGT also presents other green wall systems from across North America, allowing visitors to understand how each works and grows within the Chicago climate.

The CCGT is the first rehabilitated municipal building in the nation to receive the LEED® Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council. It has become a national model for sustainable design and technology and serves as the most comprehensive green design educational resource in the Midwest. The CCGT hosts seminars, workshops, exhibits and other events on site throughout the whole year. Most of these events are free and open to the public. 

When designing the G-O2TM display wall, green wall designer, Sabrina Buttitta of Plant Connection, drew inspiration from Chicago’s well-known street grid system.

Ajuga represent the "streets" with its neat, compact form, while its maroon foliage provides a striking contrast against the other plants – or the “city blocks”! The plant palette consists of other low-growing groundcovers able to withstand Chicago’s harsh winter winds, such as sedum and pachysandra.

Plant Connection's living wall was installed by the Fisher Burton Company and grown by Midwest Groundcovers. The CCGT is an invaluable place for those interested in incorporating sustainable design practices and green materials into their next building project.

Kent Denver School in Englewood, CO, is the first LEED Platinum certified dining hall in the United States!

In addition to incorporating beehives to pollinate the orchard that produces fruit for meals, an interior G-O2TM living wall measuring 14 feet by 18 feet grows herbs used in cooking, as well as other plants. After serving 700 meals to students, faculty and staff, the dining hall only generates a single bag of trash every school day!
