Paper Title:
Applying Modular Greening Technology in Living Walls of Shanghai Expo
  Abstract

The living wall of theme pavilion of Shanghai Expo was enrolled in World Record Association for its 5,000 m2 area. The wall with modular design concept was also a symbol of energy-saving. This study took Shanghai Expo as a case to explore the modular greening technology including theory analysis, design factor and cooling effect. The technology has the following virtues: Environment-friendly idea of recycled waster paper pulp, reused litter and other organic waste; economy concept of collecting rain, holding water and nutrient in medium and tolerating extensive management; integrity medium formula; modular suitable to plant upward growth; applicable for district of hot summer and cold winter, Plum rain and typhoons. After victory exhibition of the World Expo, living wall will further popularize in compact metropolitans.
