The Living Wall was installed by EcoWalls of Bordentown, N.J., and this space is a visual reminder of the College of Health Sciences’ overall mission of promoting health and wellness. Michael Coraggio, founder and design principal of EcoWalls, said some plants, including spathiphyllum and philodendron, were selected because they can absorb volatile organic compounds and other harmful indoor air contaminants. Others have a soothing fragrance, including hoyas, which smell like chocolate, as well as vanilla orchids.
