I've lived in a wide variety of homes over my lifetime including some large houses during family raising years. Watch the video. Does this look like low-income housing to you? I haven't seen the living accommodations but based on the rooftop plaza I'd be happy to live here.My reason for posting about it is to point out that the entire rooftop garden could have been done using basic principles long used in the interior plantscaping business.
This project cries out for the use of sub-irrigated planters (SIPs) as "growing inserts" concealed inside all of the overly large planters that were used. Professional interior plantscapers have long used SIPs inside decorative planters. It is "plumbing" that is hidden from the eyes of occupants and visitors.
