Cities around the world are becoming denser, with greater built form resulting in more hard surfaces and less green space, leaving little room for vegetation or habitat. One way of creating more natural environments within cities is to incorporate green roofs and walls in new buildings or to retrofit them in existing structures. This title provides design inspiration and practical advice on using green roofs and living walls.
"This book brings the current knowledge on adding biodiversity and habitat to high density human communities, into sharp relief. It will be the springboard for future research and green (living) design into the coming decades and will be essential reading for practitioners of architecture and landscape architecture, and organisations charged with the responsibility to create sustainable communities."
