Welcome to the Living Architecture Monitor

The Living Architecture Monitor's mission is to increase awareness of the economic, social, and environmental benefits of green roofs, walls and other forms of living architecture. The Living Architecture Monitor also hosts the Journal of Living Architecture (JLIV), a peer reviewed, scientific journal published by the Green Infrastructure Foundation (GIF).


From the Founder

The mounting stress levels of our times are fueled by apocalyptic scientific warnings of runaway climate change in ten years coupled with incomprehensible denial and political foot dragging. This bizarre and frightening state of affairs is mixed with a steady stream of news of raging forest fires, floods, heat waves, droughts, rising tides, the melting of Arctic and Antarctic ice, and massive species extinction. To cope, we need more than ever to design communities and buildings that are biophilic in nature. For, in so doing, we’ll not only contribute to mitigating climate change, but we can become more resilient in the face of future shocks. We’ll also be a whole lot healthier and happier along the way and perhaps, just perhaps, a little awestruck too. Read more.
