There has been an increasing interest in installing interior living walls (ILW) due to their beauty, the ability to facilitate interactions between people and nature, and the belief in their contribution to indoor environmental quality. Engineered living wall systems consist of three components: the manufactured carrier, the substrate, and the plants. However, there is little understanding of their impact on indoor air quality (IAQ) and the acoustical environment indoors.
