Native Plants and Green Roof at the Sculpture Gallery

The Yale Sculpture Building and Gallery incorporated native plantings into the surrounding landscape as well as on its green roof. These native green spaces serve as a connective habitat patch for birds moving through the urban corridor of New Haven's many parks. The green roof reduces runoff while decreasing the building's cooling load, limiting the contribution to the urban heat-island effect and providing a pleasant view for those inside the building.
