Breathing wall with dynamic insulation properties appears promising in reducing building energy load while providing fresh air to the space. Advanced living wall concept, inspired by biomimetic principles, offer further adaptive nature of envelope systems to changing outdoor conditions. This chapter introduces the principles of both innovative wall systems. Both simulation and experimental approaches are presented to design, evaluate, and optimize the proposed wall systems. Results indicates favorable trends of efficiency for both systems. Recommendations are provided for the wall development.
