  3. Haven't seen it yet. But heard that waffle slab and the green paint (merge with nature, sustainable architecture a.k.a. " I am not sure about the colour") doen't look that great. Missed opportunity or what?

  4. Does slapping on some green paint translate as sustainable design??

  5. from top of sigiriya the green roof can be seen right at the end of the central axis... looks completely alien...
    however sustainable (if so) it is, its simply not the place to locate it...
