Watch the “Green Infrastructure Design and the Biophilic Effect” Keynote Address by Mary Ann Uhlmann from Our Virtual Summit 2013

January 13, 2015 at 2:30 pm

In anticipation of Greenroofs.com‘s spectacular 2015 Virtual Summit on April 6 through May 31 – and in order to familiarize you with the event – we are now making the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 videos publicly available on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube to all free of charge.

Today we have the pleasure to air the “Green Infrastructure Design and the Biophilic Effect” Keynote Address by Mary Ann Uhlmann, who at the time was Manager, Vegetated Roof Systems Program Development for Tremco, Inc.  We’ve known Mary Ann for several years, introduced by Ralph Velasquez, one of our former Contributing Editors and the previous Executive Director of Sustainability with Tremco Inc.  Mary Ann is highly energetic, personable, and highly intelligent.  Soft spoken, she has an undeniable sharp wit and is a joy to listen to or speak with.

As you may recall, Tremco Incorporated has been the leading supporter – the Rare Earth Sponsor – of our past two Virtual Summits, and Greenroofs.com is extremely thankful for their visionary leadership and patronage.   Tremco Inc. is a leading supplier of sustainable roofing systems, including vegetative, cool roofing and more.

MaryAnnUhlmann-KeynotePhoto

In her Keynote Video Mary Ann asks, “Are vegetated roofs and walls inevitable? Are they an answer to a deep longing to connect with nature? The Biophilic Effect, a theory popularized by biologist and naturalist, Edward O. Wilson, suggests that mankind’s feelings about nature are innate, though not easily expressed in rational language. Emotions etched into our psyches millions of years ago when early man lived on open savannahs now express themselves in our desire to create park-like settings in the landscape. And now on our buildings. Are we inevitably drawn to create vegetated roofs in our urban landscapes?

In this keynote speech, I’ll pose this provocative question. I’ll introduce the theory of Biophilia, explain the adaptations we see in the landscape industry and finally in the emerging green infrastructure industry – what I call the final frontier for the Biophilic Effect.”

Here’s more:

Greenroofs.com’s “This Week in Review” on GreenroofsTV: May 4, 2012

May 6, 2012 at 10:37 pm

Each week you can expect to learn What’s New here on Greenroofs.com through our “This Week in Review” video.  Here is the transcript from May 4, 2012 from our daughter, Anjuli – click on the photo below to see the video, or here. Enjoy!

– Hello, I’m Anjuli Velázquez and welcome to “This Week in Review” for May 4, 2012 on GreenroofsTV.

Project of the Week

-Our project of the week is the Fichtebunker built in 2009, in Berlin-Kreuzberg, Germany.  This 56 meter in diameter, nineteenth-century gasometer was made into an air-raid shelter in World War II and was then used as a shelter for the homeless refugees.  In 2006, the State of Berlin’s Real Property Fund sold the building to developers and two-story luxury condos were planned on top along with townhomes and a five-story apartment building on the land around the building.  Beginning in October 2007, 13 pie shaped family residences were built with curved walls and private gardens offering beautiful views over the city

The individual apartments are accessible through a landscaped community courtyard with a fountain, bamboo troughs, and an extensive greenroof.  Each house has its own roof garden with a size of 70 to 100 square meters.  The ZinCo System build-up “Heather with Lavender,” with the Floradrain ® FD 40 drainage element as a base, provides a permanently functioning lawn with planting areas and hard surfaces.  Also, the roof of the new flats received an extensive greenroof as well as the underground parking and the roof of the new building with 12 apartments next door.

-To learn more about the Fichtebunker,  click on our project of the week photo on our homepage (or on the above photos).

– “In the News“

-Wayne Roberts of NOW Magazine, talks about “Hitting the green roof.”  He says a “crucial vote will decide if the city is serious about its greenroof policy.”  Toronto’s Green Roof Bylaw was passed in 2009, and requires green roofs on new commercial, institutional and residential developments with a minimum gross floor area of 2,000 square meters.  The issue is whether schools can be exempted from this bylaw.

The city’s chief planner recommended that the Planning and Growth Management Committee exempt public and Catholic school boards from the bylaw, saying that painting them white would reduce the heat stored on roofs and that those schools could store rainwater and offer green space on other parts of their property.  Another member of the Planning Committee opposed the school board’s attempt to sidestep their eco responsibility saying, “We expect them to be built smarter than before, and they  shouldn’t  get a pass on this.”  The city will save money in the long term, since greenroofs manage stormwater, reduce roof maintenance, lower energy bills, and help the environment among other benefits.  Schools also have the added advantage of turning their greenroofs into outdoor classrooms and teaching future generations about green infrastructure and how it enhances our lives.

-Mireya Navarro of the New York Times Blog has a “Q&A: [about] Greening the City’s Zoning Rules.”  She says, “Changes in New York City’s zoning code are expected to encourage the installation of rooftop gardens.”  This week the New York City Council unanimously approved a package of zoning changes that make it easier for property owners to undertake energy efficiency upgrades and even produce their own solar and wind power; and developers will also have more freedom to incorporate green elements into their building designs.  She asks questions like how many owners of the city’s million or so existing buildings are willing to foot the upfront costs to save energy in the longer term?  And how will things change for architects and developers once the zoning rules are relaxed?

For answers to these and other questions, she asked Howard Slatkin, director of sustainability for New York’s Department of City Planning, and Paul Freitag, the director of development in New York for the Jonathan Rose Companies.  Mr. Slatkin said they worked closely with architects, engineers, developers and other experts to identify the zoning obstacles to building or retrofitting green buildings.  Mr. Freitag says that one green element that seems to be growing in popularity is the use of greenroofs.  People in the industry are recognizing the many benefits of green roofs, like improved insulation, reduction of the heat island effect, stormwater management and food production; not to mention that green roofs are basically gardens with fantastic views.  You can go to the full article to read of all their answers to the New York Times’ questions.
