Installed in September, 2009, the Stücki Shopping Center greenroof is used as a biodiversity test and research site led by Dr. Stephan Brenneisen of ZHAW (Zurich University of Applied Sciences Wädenswil), where he is head of the Green Roof Centre of Competence. He continues to study different greenroof substrate depths and how they influence biodiversity as well as actively promotes the design of greenroofs for insect biodiversity

The Stücki Shopping Center greenroof was designed to mimic a river landscape and has attracted numerous grasshoppers, along with other insects. The extensive greeenroof is covered by mix of local substrates ranging up to 12 cm in depth.
