An example of another green approach to city living, the Green Ribbons project connects a number of high rise condominiums in the Heping neighbourhood of Tianjin. The architects Perkins+Will have created ribbons of green space that move across the site, forming roofs over a number of pavilions that include a community centre, library, recreation centre and garaging. The undulations of the roofs allow light, ventilation and access into the pavilions.
