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 #4

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 seven 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.

Designed to account for rising sea levels, the Little Island superstructure will also act as a maritime botanic garden with 35 species of trees, 65 species of shrubs, and 270 varieties of grasses, perennials, vines, and bulbs, many of which have been selected for their fragrance and attractiveness to birds and pollinators.

The Laguna is organized around a central marina and eight smaller islands form a miniature archipelago with floating, stilted and terraced housing. Newly established marine habitats support biodiversity underwater with ecological corridors connecting above. Truly an ecological urban mosaic!
