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.

Located adjacent to the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee, The Pinnacle at Symphony Place is a 29-story, 500,431 sf luxury office and retail skyscraper in the city’s SoBro (South of Broadway) district. Designed by Pickard Chilton, the 0 million Pinnacle is the city’s only Class AA office tower and first LEED Gold certified skyscraper, and the primary business address for the city’s top corporations.
Articulating the timeless design of classic skyscrapers, the building respects the neighborhood’s intimate scale. Located on a former brownfield site, the Pinnacle boasts numerous sustainable design features such as recycling 90%+ of construction waste generated on-site, daylighting, and incorporating low-E glass. Plus, a one-acre greenroof terrace garden, located over the parking garage at level seven, is landscaped with native and adaptive plants. Designed by Hawkins Partners using growing media by ERTH Products and installed by Greenrise Technologies, it provides a luscious expanse of nature for use by tenants, their employees and guests. The Pinnacle at Symphony Place not only enhances Nashville’s skyline, it affords a spectacular 360° view of the city, river, and the surrounding hills.
