Rooftop gardens and terraces let you reach for the stars so that the only limit on what you can design in your exclusive oasis is your imagination. They inject a lovely note of green into the cityscape and improve the microclimate as well. People grow their own vegetables or use grass and shrubs to frame an opulent lounge area or pool. This book showcases public and private rooftop gardens and terraces from around the world. You'll see everything from spectacular skyscraper penthouses and clever solutions for freestanding bungalows to park-like gardens on public buildings and urban farming projects. All convey the unique feeling of living between heaven and earth. Peace and relaxation are the focus in these slices of paradise, places where you can quite literally sit back and watch the world go by.
