Whilst on holiday earlier this year my eye was drawn to the vast main meeting area of the Woburn Sands a (relatively) new Center Parcs complex. Which boasts to having one of the largest green roofs in the UK (8500 meters squared if you care to know).  

Aesthetically it is a really powerful addition to the site.  Enclosed within acres of Bedfordshire forestland, from most angles, your view is not completely dominated by great chunks of the steel structure.  

Not only do these living walls and green roofs make for a more digestible addition to our landscapes, as the below report outlines, they have great benefits to pollution (both environment and us) and act as acoustic barriers too.
