For my current architecture project, I am designing a city center in Downtown Los Angeles with a park/garden on the roof as a way to introduce more green space to the crowded metropolitan area. I am planning to include open space for children to run around, picnic tables, a fire pit, tree swings, and various community garden spaces.
Here is a round up of cool green buildings that inspired my design. It’s amazing how these innovative designs combine science and architecture to benefit the environment and enrich people’s experiences!
