Top 10 Hot List, 10 Categories, 10 Week Countdown

Take a look at installation number six in my 10-part series counting down our yearly “Greenroofs.com Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design” by category.

We inaugurated the “Top 10 Hot List” in 2007, and 2018 is packed with some very cool, awesome, and stunning projects located across six continents.

I presented my fast-paced and always fun whirlwind tour across the world of living architecture in New York in September at the 2018 CitiesAlive conference.  In order to try and keep to my 30-minute maximum presentation time, I removed several projects and slides, but I’m going to show them all here in this series.

Are you ready to be dazzled and inspired by some of the latest and greatest living architecture projects from across the global greenroof and greenwall industry?

I’ve already shown #10, 9, 8, 7, & 6 – here’s the next one:
