    Bus Roots is a living garden planted on the roofs of city buses. It’s an effort that rose out of New York City designer Marco Antonio Castro Cosio’s graduate thesis at the NYU - a prototype of the rolling gardens has been installed on the roof of the BioBus, a mobile science laboratory and the first bus with an extensive green roof system. It has been growing for five months while travelling around New York City and as far as Ohio.

    Bus Roots in New York City. The bus pictured is the BioBus, with its rooftop garden. As designer Marco Castro Cosio said: A public transit bus has a surface of 340 ft2. The MTA fleet has around 4,500 buses. If we grew a garden on the roof of every one of the 4,500 buses in the MTA bus fleet, we would have 35 acres of new rolling green space in the city. The equivalent to four Bryant Parks. Good idea? YES!

    bus roots - green roof on city bus

    Fans of the WHO Farm Project will enjoy Bus Roots, a green roof system designed for buses by Marco Castro Cosio. Ethereally speaking, it grounds the urban, metallic inflexible atmosphere of modern transport with the essence of nature. Logically speaking: it’s a heavy metal roof garden on a bus. http://www.artofncook.com/
