Fiber-Grass  is a sustainable mixed-use development in Greater Noida, which is located about 25 miles southeast of New Delhi in Northern India. The project, designed by Dinkoff Architects & Engineers , was conceived of as a self-sufficient organism, with lush gardens, solar panels on the roof, and natural heating and cooling systems that help to cut down on operations costs. The building features several interior and exterior gardens on different levels that improve the indoor air quality while helping to keep the building cool in the summer. Clever use of shading also helps to deflect the hot summer sun from causing the apartments to overheat.
