Presenter: Jock Gammon, Founder and Managing Director, Junglefy
Join us for our second talk in the Thrive series featuring Jock Gammon, Co-founder and Managing Director of Junglefy.
Cities are looking to integrate more natural features into their design, with many aspiring to become “urban jungles” abound with plants and wildlife. Jock, a field-leading expert, will discuss the importance and practicalities of living infrastructure in creating liveable, productive and healthy communities.
Council is working with Junglefy and UTS to install the region’s largest Breathing Wall at Campbelltown Station. This innovative installation will contribute data regarding improvements in air quality, and begin Council’s vision of greening the CBD. The Wall will be made of 160 modules, containing over 1,200 plants.
Jock is the co-founder and managing director of Junglefy, a business renowned for delivering complex and innovative green walls, roofs and facades – known as living infrastructure.
Junglefy want to turn our cities into urban jungles with plants growing everywhere - on the walls of car parks and highways, inside and outside buildings, along lane-ways and on rooftops. Jock pioneered the award-winning ‘Junglefy Breathing Wall’, an active plant system scientifically proven to accelerate the removal of air pollutants, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter.
Jock challenges the status quo through investing in science and research behind the Breathing Wall and other technologies. His vision to create better places for people is helping to shape the future of living infrastructure.
