The workshop on roof gardens aims to find answers to many questions: whether infrastructure should be considered as a landscape or landscape as an infrastructure? Prestige or necessity? Heroism or everyday life? History or the future? Complexity or sterility? Instrument or strategic solution? Are Roof Gardens in Belgrade a question or answer?

The workshop brings together young landscape architects who want to improve their knowledge and skills in the design and maintenance of roof gardens. The program is designed as an interactive classroom with lecturers and work on real examples with the final presentation and exhibition. Topics covered by the workshop include construction technology, materials, design principles, maintenance, performance, implementation effects, public participation, strategic planning, etc.
