At the moment a 1 kilometer shopping strip is being build in Rotterdam. We had to convince a famous Dutch gardening company to move to this place. So we made a nice animation with Lumion:

Nice smooth animation, sells the idea very well.

One question, I see you have trees on the roof, what about the roots? I know about organic roofs, but I have never seen planted trees on one before.

Well come and visit Rotterdam then ;-) But I agree. Most of the organic roofs are covered with grass or moss. This roof is thicker and prepared for (big) trees.

Yeah Great work !

Planted roof is possible of course but need one or two things to work :
A solid roof to support the weight of the earth and the tree of course and an "anti roots" geotextile.
