Swiss green roof for biodiversity

Swiss Green Roof For Biodiversity - 1

This is one of the original green roofs designed for biodiversity in the City of Basel. First installed in 2002, the roof is still flourishing and provide much needed habitat for rare invertebrates in the city.

The roof was instrumental in setting out a vision of how to design green roofs for biodiversity initiated by Dr. Stephan Brenneisen. This vision was adopted in London in the early 2000s.
