One of Canada’s most celebrated architectural buildings, Ottawa’s Canadian War Museum has one of the earliest large scale extensive green roofs. Over 2 hectares in size , the green roof is composed of native grasses and plants and is designed to biomimic the surrounding landscape. By providing a continuous line of landscape from the ground to the sky, the green roof anchors the museum as it rises to the sky.
