Design Intent

This drought tolerant grasscape is a sustainable alternative to a standard heat collecting roof. The softness of the plant material creates a bold contrast to the angular industrial metal finishes on the building’s roof. The grasses offer insulation and collect rainwater to help mitigate urban runoff.
