  1. Environmental Design and Construction magazine has the results of a year-long test of green roof (thermal) performance in their current issue & online at http://www.edcmag.com. It’s interesting to me that modular green roof systems increase the functional life expectancy of a typical membrane roof.

  2. I love the softness and color it adds to the cement and steel…..some amazing ideas
    I’ve never seen before.

  3. This is inspiring to incorporate even in a simplified way through vines. Vines can make something green take on almost any shape.
