|La Barceloneta buildings, Barcelona|
Above Barceloneta beach, the most popular beach in Barcelona promenade, modern buildings are built with variety of integrated greening. On one of the buildings, an extensive green roof with grass and low vegetation was installed. Although anyone hardly walks over the roof, from the seaside road greenery can be seen while the green roof is used mainly for natural temperature control of the building.
As part of a shopping mall that has lots of open space and big glass windows, there is a plateau with a garden and a pond. This is mainly used by the restaurant and provides plenty of shade, but also beautifies concrete, glass and metal. Converting non-functional areas in a functional and aesthetically pleasing with an integrated green go very well together, especially in modern architecture.
