LET’S RETHINK ROOFS!
Our urban environments have never been so lively, and the maximum capacities of urban infrastructures of some communities seem to have been reached. What can be done? The solution reveals itself when looking at any aerial images of downtown areas: roofs! Indeed, building roofs represent 15% to 35% of their total area of their structure, which is a huge underused surface that is available to us.
The idea is to rethink the roof in order to appreciate its value and its contribution to communities and sustainable buildings beyond its primary waterproofing function. In addition to contributing to the well-being of occupants, it can also reduce the building’s impact on the environment.
The possibilities offered by roofs are endless and could make it easier to address a vast array of challenges related to housing, energy transition, resilience to climate change, social inclusion, and many more. Roofs have been underutilized for too long: it is high time to rethink and optimize their purpose!
