GRHC launches the Fall 2022 edition of the Living Architecture Monitor


Green roofs for healthy cities is pleased to present the digital fall 2022 edition of the Monitor for living architecture. The fall issue explores multiple facets of water with articles and our new podcasts. The issue looks at water’s biophilic abilities, how design integration is key to achieving net zero, and how we can harness its life-giving properties with green infrastructure to adapt to the climate crisis hitting our cities. Water – it moves in us, on us and around us – and deserves more respect and attention than it gets. Read it here.
