Planting Grass Over Their Heads

Green Roof at UH’s Burdette Keeland Design and Exploration Center

Will something like this be coming soon to a home near you? Up now: a green roof atop a renovated building that will serve as a fabrication shop for architecture and industrial design students at the University of Houston. Unlike most of Houston’s (few) commercial and institutional buildings with a planted roof, this one has a slope to it.
