Fink + Jocher. Student Hall of Residence. Garching. Munich

Four years after its completion, the climbing vine has not managed to get past the second storey and the East and West facades suffer the consequences.

The solution for enclosure thought up by the architects is made up of a stainless steel mesh, - which acts as a safety parapet and facilitates the green wall – and of double-glazing with adjustable shutters inside.  Some students have decided to add a third layer of sheet aluminium on the inside, as you can see in one of the photos.
