Green Roofs Now and Then

Green roofs c. 1728 (the Hermitage in Queen Caroline's gardens at Richmond, later to become Kew), 1797 (location unknown, from the NYPL collection, and isn't the garden seat sketched below the gazebo beautiful?),

and 2007, from the School of Art Design & Media in Nanyang Singapore, by CPG Consultants Pte (via haute*nature). I love that the rooftop is functional space, accessed by a stairway that runs all along the sides. Picnic on the roof, anyone?

I wonder if anyone's ever tried playing golf on these? A picnic would be fun too ... I can just imagine a group of kids playing soccer and leaving a few marks...
