    ..….As you journey through the publication it’s hard not to be inspired at the thought of wide open, fresh green retreats bringing new life and rich bursts of colour to harsh spaces. The design of these rooftop areas are thoughtfully seeking harmony between the natural and the social in engineering spaces, which entice people to gather and enjoy, whilst nurturing the delicate environmental balance and benefits. This book is an appetising body of work sure to set inspiration in motion for transforming lifeless, unused spaces into greener areas of vibrancy and energy.
