“Holy Grail” of green roofs: Architect William McDonough


William-McDonough-300x149Architect William McDonough speaks about finding his “Holy Grail” of green roofs for the Ford Truck Plant.

“Something we had been searching for…relentlessly.”




The XF301 Sedum Light system was chosen for the expansive 10.4 acre Ford Rouge Truck Plant.

Lightweight and low maintenance, the pre-vegetated sedum mats were ideal for this large scale application. “It was something we had been diligently searching for a decade relentlessly”.
