It’s been a year since Greenroofs.com concluded our third Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summit: Connecting the Planet + Living Architecture, and as promised, we are now releasing the 23 videos from our 30+ international speakers to the general public. Living walls and roofs can be designed to provide functional architecture. These functions can include the growth of food products, reducing pollutants in air and water, and minimizing building energy use. Specific research and field applications of these functions from both the USA and China will be described. Potential pitfalls are also discussed.
