I am happy seeing that today it is the moment to think different.

Let me show you my first project done with this techniques in 2005! more than 10 years ago in Barcelona.

Single house in Barcelona's mountain · More Info

I designed and built this single home in Barcelona Mountains. Today it is a brand new idea but people like me we were visionary and hard workers convincing and encouraging people to be green and sustainable.

Awesome Article!!

I agree with the title byline from this as well - there are a myriad reasons to consider a green roof, and I think the overall benefits to urban air quality and a variety of other factors really make the living roof a brilliant concept that we should be demanding more of.
