Green Architecture: from living architecture to softscapes

A San Francisco Bay Area housing complex incorporates many elements of green and sustaining architecture and design.

  Long established in Europe, green, or living, roofs are becoming increasingly popular here in the United states, as more people  recognize their value in conserving energy, improving air quality, and managing storm water runoff, along with their aesthetic qualities.

Virginia Russell, associate professor at UC’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, known as the “Green Roof Guru,” has advocated for green infrastructure, and sustainable and regenerative design for years. She is also Director of the UC DAAP Horticulture Program. Professor Russell and Sanyog Rathod, president and CEO of Sol design + consulting join us to discuss the use of living architecture and softscapes to improve our buildings, and environment.  For more information on green architecture, check out: Green Roofs for Healthy Cities or the Journal of Living Architecture.
