Project Smartroof 2.0

Details

Project Smartroof 2.0 is a 4700 sq.ft. demonstration and research blue-green roof system aiming at maximizing rainwater capture, storage and capillary (0-energy) irrigation. The goal of this blue green roof system is to maximize its urban cooling capacity by means of plant evapotranspiration.

Secondly, by always having water available for plant growth, it is now possible to grow a wider variety of plants (grasses and herbs) amongst the standard mixed Sedums in an absolute minimal substrate layer (40 mm).
