For the implementation of the project, all specific roof growth conditions (e.g. exposure to wind and sun, drought and soil drying, winter frosts) have been taken into account to encourage plant growth.
This has created in the students a new awareness towards the environment representing a real open-air classroom, a laboratory to discover nature.
The little terrace allows socialization opportunities among students.
