LiveRoof® at Greenbuild

LiveRoof will exhibit at Greenbuild at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, Toronto, Canada, October 4-6, 2011. LiveRoof will be at booth #125N.

A guided tour of the LiveRoof® installation at Toronto City Hall will be featured in a Greenbuild off-site educational session. The guided tour is part of “OF05 – Enacting a Green Roof by Law” on Thursday, October 6, 2011, 3:00-5:30 p.m. Architectural critic Lisa Rochon has called the Toronto City Hall green roof “so impressive in its landscape detail and magnetism that it warrants the drop command: Drop everything and go directly to it.” Greenbuild attendees who cannot participate in the offsite session on October 6, 2011 can still visit the Toronto City Hall green roof, which is the largest publically accessible extensive green roof in all of Canada. It is open to the public daily from sunrise to sunset. Information for self-guided tours will be available during Greenbuild from LiveRoof at booth #125N.
