Green Roofs

A quick hit for the evening today, the practice of putting solar panels or plants on the roofs of commercial buildings is gaining momentum in Europe. I think it's a rather interesting trend, and really, not a terribly bad use of otherwise wasted space. Although having worked in two building with leaky roofs, I'm not sure whether a garden on top would help or hinder maintenance needs.

I guess what I'm saying is if you can, don't work in shabbily built ex-factory/warehouse buildings. And greening is a good thing.
