Last month’s Cities Alive! Congress offered many opportunities to tour many examples of Toronto’s various green infrastructure practices, including greenroofs, green walls, and green streets. Christine and I both shared our experiences on two different “sustainable tours,” and now we invite you on a visual photo tour of six locales visited from a German colleague of ours. Roland Appl, International Green Roof Association (IGRA) President & ZinCo‘s Technical Director, joined the guided walking Tour A: “Spectacular Green Roofs in Downtown Toronto” and shares these photos with us from October 21, 2009:
University of Toronto – Trinity College – St. Hilda’s College Residence:
The Metro Toronto YMCA:
The Drs. Paul and John Rekai Centre:
Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC):
The Robertson Building, 215 Spadina:
Thanks, Roland! I’ve created some initial profiles of each of these projects for The Greenroof Projects Database, and we’d appreciate if you have additional information and you’d like to share with us and the international greenroof community! Please send additional text, designers/manufacturers of record, greenroof area, and photos to: [email protected].
