Pocket Habitat: a modular approach to greenroofs

Arup and Sky-Garden have launched Pocket Habitat, a modular planting bag designed to promote biodiversity on roofs. Last week, AJ Technical Editor Felix Mara attended the launch at Arup’s new HQ at 8 Fitzroy Street London and wrote the following report:

"I’m glad I attended the launch because Pocket Habitat really is a product which you have to see to appreciate. The zip-up bags, with their grey felt outer layers, are covetable objects and they form attractive groups of planting which is available in a range of specifications, with six pick and mix substrates. Rather like the iPod, you might say ‘is that all it does?’ But it does it very well, it looks great and it rocks."
