  • Abstract in English : With the increasing emphasis on greenery in an urban environment such as Singapore, the paper reports the journey that the tiny and modern country had taken to evolve itself from being a tropical greenery island to one that enhances its international stature through the adoption of green roof landscape technology. The paper also reports on some of the experience gained and lessons learnt through involvement in an extensive-type green roof project, and finally, the prospects of the green roof industry in Singapore in the near future.
