That's a great story and a beautiful roof!

We've got a lot of buildings on this Planet, and many of the roofs could look like that one:).

Noted, Thank you Cal.

I like the idea of urban rooftop gardens. If you can't grow food on the land on which the building sits, transfer the land to the rooftop and grow it there! Great use of a rooftop!

Jo'burg also uses "car parks" as sites for solar cell collectors.....very sensible.
