Known as a “green roof,” the Mann Library Green Roof features modular trays filled with growing medium that can support selected plant life and easily be removed for roof maintenance or tray replacement. This garden was designed and constructed to convert a roof into a human-occupiable landscape that also provides ecosystem services. This was an effective way to add social space on campus where space is limited.
