Green roofs and walls in Barcelona. A study on existing and potential implementation strategies
The objective of this study is to analyze and evaluate the potential of surfaces in public spaces and publically owned buildings in Barcelona that could be transformed to green walls and roofs. This initiative falls into the framework of the The Geen City Strategic Plan.
The study defines the strategic locations and the considerations necessary to apply the transformations in the various districts. The plan is based on the following four procedures: definition of structural characteristics of roofs and green walls, methodological identification of existing and potential space, analysis of strategies in diverse cities, and finally the development of summaries that permit viewers to understand and visualize the more significant spaces in Barcelona.
