                                                    Corporate Green Roof of Japan
This is the ACROS Fukoka Building, which is a 100,000-square-foot park laid onto 15 stepped terraces.  “Each terrace floor contains an array of gardens for meditation, relaxation, and escape from the congestion of the city.

 Green rooftops are defined as structures that have a layer of living plants on top of the structure.  This includes waterproofing elements.  They protect the roof from sunlight, thus extending its life.  They also keep the roof cooler, cutting down on energy costs, and they provide a source of oxygen and habitat for wildlife.   


Those purple flowers invigorate me!:)
