Green Roof, Gateway Community College
This campus is a model of effective urban landscape interventions. Simple, durable and sustainable materials for longevity and ease of maintenance are used in an elegant, understated way that maximizes their aesthetic impact while providing a multi-faceted approach to representing current best practices in sustainable design including roof deck gardens and rain gardens. The result is a landscape that both educates and delights with a natural, urbane environment that contributes to student performance, staff effectiveness, and most importantly, public perception of educational value and achievement.
