    Great idea… the weight issue could be substantially lessened if shear braces were used… it is a bit dangerous for the structure unless it was built for weight on the roof… but since it is brick it is it is something to maybe brace the corners a bit… at least in Earthquake country like where we live… but I love the idea of urban gardening… very green!

    Nice John. Don't forget the cooling benefit of having the containers on the roof absorbing sun energy.
