About: Team

Carolyn Fahey

Founder + Design Lead

Since 2008, Carolyn has been obsessed with Patrick Blanc's work, particularly his green wall on Herzog & de Meuron's Caixa Forum in Madrid. Since discovering Patrick Blanc, she has extensively researched green wall systems including the ecosystem benefits, approaches to wall system design, and policy applications for local jurisdictions. After a successful career teaching and practicing architecture in the UK and US, and reviewing development proposals for the City of San Francisco and City of Boulder, Carolyn made her green wall obsession a reality with the 2022 launch of Green Shadow.
