The UPENN
Green Roof Demonstration Station

Research Assistant: Yudi Dong

*THIS IS A BETA DEPLOYMENT.

VISUALIZATIONS DO NOT REFLECT REAL RAINFALL DATA AT THIS TIME.

About This Station

In collaboration with the undergraduate architecture program at UPENN, and with the support of the Penn Environmental Innovations Initiative (PEII), we have developed a testing station that demonstrates the comparative effect of an intensive green roof and an extensive green roof assembly relative to a control roof on the delay of peak storm water loads during live rain events.

This station supports the coursework of ARCH 3010: Alternative Topographies, a studio in the core sequence of the undergraduate architecture major.
