Green Roof Design

Explore best practices for analyzing sites, balancing weight restrictions with programmatic goals, selecting resilient plant palettes, managing stormwater, and more. We'll overview typical green-roof components (including proprietary systems and soils), discuss the challenges of green-roof microclimates, and consider the expanding possibilities for green roofs in New York City and beyond. Final projects will use New York City's Climate Mobilization Act of 2019 as a springboard for an original green-roof design proposal.
