A rooftop garden
SYNTHe urban green roof project in LA came to fruition last week. 95% of the garden aims to provide the greens for the ground floor restaurant.
Dan Hill who oversaw the project said "Standing up there, looking down onto thousands of square metres of non-productive, non-useful roof space, just sitting there in the sun soaking up heat, wasting energy and giving nothing back to the city, you realise you’re standing on a structure and a system that could be 'cut-and-paste' across all those roofs”.
