PLANKET by Artemis Dundovic

‘Plan­ket’, a green facade instal­la­tion, is an inno­v­a­tive and sus­tain­able solu­tion for build­ing facades that acts as a pro­tec­tive blan­ket made up of planters, mesh, and plants. It pro­vides weath­er pro­tec­tion, cre­ates a sound bar­ri­er, and main­tains tem­per­a­ture for the build­ing. For the envi­ron­ment, it reduces car­bon diox­ide emis­sions, cre­ates health­i­er cities and clean­er air. Last­ly, it cre­ates an aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing look that blends the building’s archi­tec­ture with organ­ic shapes cre­at­ed by the plants. 

Who ‘Plan­ket’ is designed for archi­tects, build­ing own­ers, and urban plan­ners who are look­ing to incor­po­rate sus­tain­able and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly fea­tures into their build­ings. 

Why ‘Plan­ket’ pro­vides sev­er­al ben­e­fits to the build­ings and the envi­ron­ment. It pro­tects the facade and reduces the need for arti­fi­cial heat­ing and cool­ing, mak­ing it an ide­al choice for those who pri­or­i­tize sus­tain­abil­i­ty. It helps to cre­ate health­i­er and more aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing envi­ron­ments, mak­ing it an attrac­tive option for build­ing own­ers and occu­pants.

How The instal­la­tion con­sists of planters that are secure­ly attached to the bot­tom of the build­ing and filled with soil and plants. The planters are con­nect­ed to drain pipes from the roof, allow­ing excess rain­wa­ter to be col­lect­ed and stored in in-between basins. The mesh is installed to the building’s facade, and as the plants grow, they cling to the mesh, allow­ing the geo­met­ric accus­tomed archi­tec­ture to be dis­solved smooth­ly into the organ­ic plant struc­ture. 

Where ‘Plan­ket’ should be installed in urban areas where air pol­lu­tion is an issue and veg­e­ta­tion is need­ed.  It can also be installed on build­ings that require heat­ing and cool­ing reg­u­la­tions, and can be applied on both new and old facades.
