Parking Garage in Spain Gets a Green Roof Makeover
by Bridgette Meinhold, 07/12/10
Parking garages are often overlooked pieces of architecture, but this underground garage in Alicante Spain received some special treatment with a green roof makeover. Urbanarbolismo, a Spanish firm with a strong focus on vegetation, designed and installed this succulent garden in the courtyard of the garage. The garden is super low-maintenance and doesn't need any irrigation whatsoever, and with every passing year it will grow more and more beautiful as the plants grow larger and take root.
