I was doing some afternoon browsing and came across some impressive images of the ACROS Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall in Japan. It’s a combination office, atrium, and symphony hall, housed underneath a gorgeous “green roof”. Built on the last remaining green patch in Fukuoka City’s downtown area, the building features terraced roof gardens on the south side with a traditional glass front facing the street to the north.
The ACROS Fukuoka building was constructed in 1995 and is now covered with a healthy level of vegetation. According to a giant list put together by greenroofs.com, there are currently 539 buildings featuring a veggie exterior, including the Rhode Island Department of Highways, boasting an impressive 100 square foot plot!
