Eco-friendly wall / Sound-absorbing wall

Eco-friendly wall
Eco-friendly wall

Sound-absorbing walls are public facilities constructed artificially to solve urban noise problems. Nowadays eco-friendly research and development about them are progressing, but considering their influence on urban beauty, it's still necessary to make lots of studies about them.
Eco-friendly sound-absorbing walls I suggest perform not only sound-absorbing function but also have value of sculptures by varying with the sections of the vertical planes of sound-absorbing walls.
Ivy is planted on the upper part of the vertical bar structure made of recycling timber and the design elements of the wall can be a green shelter for the citizens.
