Literature & knowledge
Green City e.V.

Climate change and densification are bringing Munich more hot days with little cooling at night and strong heat radiation at night. Trees mitigate these effects, but climbing plants can also act like a natural air conditioning system: Green walls reduce the heat storage of façades and walls through shading and a large evaporating surface, while only requiring small space. Therefore, the greening buildings is even promoted in Munich. Which plants and climbing aids are suitable and what needs to be considered during planning are the central topics in the online lecture by Wolfgang Heidenreich from the Green City e.V. greening office.
