These are impressive photographs of the green roof movement. We actually covered the Chicago green roof in our blog. A lot of work and design was put into that project. I think the coolest part of the Chicago green roof was the ability for visitors to walk through a botanical garden on the roof with a great view. However, in College Station roofs, which is the general field of my interest these days and in whose search I reached this great piece of knowledge, the only roofs that really allow for this level of development are commercial buildings and perhaps a few of the building on the Texas A&M campus.
