Similar to many cities, Dundee is filled with flat roofs and empty walls. Creative and intentional infrastructure is one of the ways humans can learn to live with the natural world instead of against it.
These images show what University of Dundee (above) and the City of Dundee (below) would look like if all the flat roofs were converted into living roofs. The left image is an aerial photograph, the right is a laser cut image with holes where plants could grow with proper infrastructure.
A living roof can be anything as large-scale as a garden, or as low maintenance as a sedum roof.
The pieces shown on the right are a part of my show, Changing Anthropogenic Intention, and will be on view at the University of Dundee Master's show.
