About the Book
Roof gardens carry the irresistible intrigue
of a fantasy space that defies
both gravity and the logic of a landscape.
Capturing the imagination of
designers from the Hanging Gardens
of Babylon to Le Corbusier’s Five
Points of Architecture, roof gardens
reflect the desire to reclaim forgotten
rooftops, privileged oases that inspire
the urban canvas with creative brushstrokes.
