I came across this building while doing some research for a blog post about an idea that won't get out of my head: Why don't we plant plants on our house's roofs? It looks amazing (simply google for "green roofs" if the ACROS Fukuoka didn't convince you) and as you might remember from Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" and the like: plants eat those bad little gases, spit good things out instead.

So, again, my question is why don't we plant plants on our house's roofs? In Iceland for example it's a tradition to build so called "sod roofs".
