WHY Green Roofs – An Architect’s Perspective


Our behaviors are guided by logic but decisions are ultimately made by an ephemeral part of the brain. That is WHY influence is inspired by passion. So WHY should greening of our built environment be a passion?

I am an architect who is firmly grounded in science and technology. Putting that aside, my presentation attempts to inspire by communicating from the heart WHY I believe greenroofs are an important piece in the puzzle for sustainable development.
