While the world is turning into a concrete jungle, there is still hope for greens on the roofs of houses and other commercial and residential buildings. They can in fact, turn into solar energy generating plants, or if you don't want to spend so much on green power, another alternative would be to convert roofs into green roofs.

Converting your roof to a green one comes with two advantages: the availability of food and the ability to lower the solar heat gain, reducing the amount of energy required to cool the interiors. Industrial designer Kyungho Ha is trying to help the public in the conversion process with a system called Natural Protector.

The planter opens up on four sides to form a waterproof layout-base for growing plants. Connect these plants together and your roof is good to go.
