The other day I was alerted to a great project in Baltimore, MD, USA . This project aims to install the first green roof specifically designed for honeybees. One of the people behind the project is Jorg Breunig.
The Stucki Shopping Centre, Basel, opened last year, is the kind of place that you will be familiar with – hundreds of shops under one roof and underground parking. It does include some innovative features though including heating using waste heat from an adjoining industrial estate and absorption refrigerators, which also use waste heat. There is also an enormous (35,000m2) extensive biodiverse green roof – standard practice in Basel (see description by Jim Labbe ), but the feature that will strike most visitors as they arrive is the facade greening. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
