Challenges of a Rooftop Village

Adding green and buildings to existing rooftops means searching for answers to many questions. About the construction and capacity of the rooftop, suitable plant species and the business case of a rooftop village, among others. The research through a pilot village, by Stichting Dakdorpen, has been underway now for one and a half years. A permit application has been filed towards the first realisation of a rooftop village on De Kroon, a building in the west of Rotterdam.
