To provide sub-soil drainage and waterproofing membrane protection for the 3 curved landscape roofs.


VersiCell lightweight modules positioned directly onto the waterproofing membrane provided an insulation layer protecting the membrane whilst rapid water capture and highly efficient drainage capability prevents water-logging on the green roof. The landscape roofs create additional open amenity space, insulate the building, cool the surrounding air and assist in harvesting rainwater for landscaping irrigation. The curving green roofs blend landscape and structure, nature and high-tech with an organic and vegetated form that distinguishes the building from among the other structures on campus.
