In the largest example on a council-owned building, Auckland Council has installed a living ‘green roof’ featuring more than 2000 plants on top of the central Auckland Library. Mayor Phil Goff hopes the green roof will prompt other central Auckland property owners to consider the benefits of green infrastructure. Local iwi Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei developed the roof design inspired by whāriki, a plaiting style of weaving.
