Firestone roofing enables Asia’s largest urban rooftop farm
Climate change and urbanization call for new solutions to maintain and improve the quality of life in our cities
Green roofs can play an important role, especially when they can mitigate heat island effects, which occur particularly where landscapes have turned from green to gray, like cities. With Firestone Building Products Holcim can now bring greenery back into cities with a range of insulating, cool and green roofing systems.
One great example is the H-shaped roof of Thammasat University, located 40km from Bangkok, Thailand. As the largest urban rooftop farm in Asia, the 22.000-square meter Thammasat University Green Roof incorporates modern landscape architecture with agricultural ingenuity, inspired by traditional rice terraces of Northern Thailand.
