Have you ever noticed these words are an anagram of each other? Quite appropriate to appreciate our rock from the sun! We hope you enjoyed St. Valentine’s Day yesterday with a very special someone or simply with Earth’s bounty and your own soul.

Happy International Green Wall Day! Let’s show our planet some love and join us in sharing your special greenwall projects on social media using the hashtag #GreenWallDay. Greenwalls offer so many beautiful, cooling, biodiversity and biophilic benefits to the local environment (plus adding to the bottom line), both inside and out. Check out the lovely video created by Pritchard & Pritchard on our Events page.

Please let us know what else you’d like to read about on in 2024
~ we’re always open to new contributors, too!

On Feb 15 don’t miss the GRHC Unlocking Synergies: A Virtual Symposium on the Integration of Solar Panels with Green Roofs. Held from 1-4pm EST, this symposium aims to dispel the notion that one must choose between sustainability and energy efficiency by showcasing the manifold benefits of integrating solar solutions with greenroofing.

As our current Featured Project we’re showcasing the Casa de Retiro Espiritual in southern Spain. Designed by trailblazing green architect Emilio Ambasz, The House of Spiritual Retreat is a merging of soft and hard, meandering and geometric, and modern and traditional, where modern aesthetic meets Arabian Moorish design, literally rooted within its Andalusian landscape.

Have you visited the brand-new Emilio Ambasz Virtual Museum ( website yet? Representing his “Green over the Gray” philosophy – a message of reconciliation between the natural realm and the artificial world – experience Ambasz’s many years in architecture, urban design, industrial and graphic design, and more. Read all about it from our Guest Feature from Ferdinando Crespi.
