Living Roof Workshop (211-550)
With Gabrielle Fladd, Ecological Designer, Rana Creek

Sat, Jun 6, 10:00am--1:00pm

 Experience the place where ecology meets engineering and environmental imagination meets structural reality, as Ecological Designer and teacher Gabrielle Fladd leads an all-new workshop on painting the urban landscape with strokes of living vegetation.

Gabrielle and her team at Rana Creek incorporate green roofs, living walls, and ecological watershed systems into building and landscape design. This rapidly growing technique can contribute significantly to a sustainable future for our society if we are willing to realize its full potential.

Learn where and how green roofs can flourish, and see how we can spur a sea change in our energy use and environmental impact by replacing ecosystems where bulldozers have cleared them away.

Major projects like the awe-inspiring 160,000-square-foot living roof at the California Academy of Sciences and the in-progress five-acre living roof at the San Francisco Transbay Terminal present Gabrielle and Rana Creek as leaders in the emerging field of ecological design. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn about their work on the cutting edge of environmentalism. Join Gabrielle along with other Rana Staff including Nick Holmes designer and trained architect, Evan Tozier construction manager and Josh Koepke, horticulturist and native plant specialist from their native plant nursery.
