Green Roofs and Walls

PRESENTED BY


City of Sydney and the Powerhouse Museum

You’ve just finished a fresh salad for lunch and you’re picking a ripe apple to take with you while you walk the dog. You could be anywhere. Except your salad grew on your fifth story balcony, the apple was picked from a vertical garden and Fido is chasing a ball atop of your green roof. Is this the future for Sydney?

Join passionate sustainable architect Caroline Pidcock and our panel of green roofs and vertical garden advocates as they share their ideas, studies and inspiration for a greener city.
