The GENO-Haus bank building greenroofs in Stuttgart were originally installed in 1969. Experiments had entailed using a modular system made of Styrofoam, but the necessary technology to protect the membrane from the roots had not yet been perfected. After the renovation of the roof membrane in 1990 of three greenroofs on the 11th floor were reinstalled with updated root-resistant technologies by landscape architect Peter Philippi and the greenroof system manufacturer, optima.
