This project creates a new paradigm for rooftops and provides technical and spatial inspiration for the design of green roofs across the globe. By integrating 'blue roof’ and ‘green roof’ technologies we have provided exceptional hydrological performance to extents not typically realized on urban green roofs, while supporting a vibrant program of social and cultural events. Pancake cisterns, located beneath the plaza pavers, store and slowly release rainwater into the green roof areas limiting the potable water needed to irrigate the diverse plant palette. The roof supports native perennials, grasses, trees and shrubs.
