2020 Plus a Look into 2021 Top 10 Hot List, 11 Categories, 11 Week Countdown

As promised since my 2020 Top 10 List of Hot RESILIENT Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design Plus a Look into 2021 video is perhaps for some, a bit long at just under an hour, we cut up my 14th installment of the yearly Top 10 Hot List into categories to make it easier (quicker) to watch.

You can see them all on our 2020 Top 10 List of Hot RESILIENT Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design Plus a Look into 2021 Playlist on our YouTube channel.

2020 Plus a Look into 2021 Top 10 Hot List Category #5

Greenroofs.com inaugurated the “Top 10 Hot List” in 2007, and the current 2020 Plus a Look into 2021 video is packed with extremely important, awesome, and inspiring projects located across six continents.

This is installation number six in the 11-part series counting down my yearly “Greenroofs.com Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design” by category, this year modified with the very important RESILIENT in front of “Trends.”

And new this year, for 2020 I’ve defined the Top 10 categories in terms of their Resiliency application.

The safari lodge home Arijiju takes its name from the Maasai word for the hill on which it was built. Situated near a watering hole, the terraced property has been carefully oriented toward sweeping views of the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya, unobtrusive and embedded in the landscape.

Thammasat University Rooftop Farm (TURF):

Through volunteering, 40,000 students and nearby residents learn about this cultural landscape and their heritage. Lessons on Thai agriculture, native soil and nutrition are embedded into TURF, educating future leaders to adapt and embrace climate challenges, by building sustainable cities for generations to come.

NOTE: We admired the Thammasat University Urban Rooftop Farm (TURF) so much we showcased it as our Greenroofs.com Featured Project on February 16, 2021.

The Guha facades are made of concrete and vertical steel with bamboo louvres and are open to the north and south and closed at the west side. Abundant vegetation everywhere brings nature into the Indonesian mixed architecture of steel and bamboo.
