This is a somewhat inaccurate picture of the roof of the science museum in Golden Gate Park. I think all buildings should have roof gardens.

  1. I agree – EVERY roof should have a garden… how do you grow on slanted slate tiles??? in Scottish wind?

    They did it by embedding the soil in a great big mesh of thin cables and light bricky stuff. It’s amazing! The wind isn’t quite Scottish, but it’s considerable.
