Award Winning Green Roof Designs - Hardcover Book
Over 100 beautiful, informative photos display the green roof technology that is quickly becoming a fundamental element of the emerging practice of living architecture. The award-winning roof designs displayed and described—for private homes, businesses, and public spaces alike—integrate natural and artificial systems, resulting in healthier, more sustainable buildings and communities. Green roofs have the capacity to deliver multiple public and private benefits.
The projects depicted and discussed cover a wide geographic range from Manitoba to Florida, stretching from the mid-Atlantic coast to the Pacific. The projects are almost exclusively the product of multi-disciplinary, collaborative design processes. Details about the plants used, growing media, drainage and irrigation systems, and waterproofing, along with descriptions of challenges overcome, and innovations developed, are provided.
