America’s largest green roof

I’ve been snooping around the internet to see if there are good applications of green roofs to existing and/or historic structures.  Just want to see if it’s more common to see green roofs on new developments or on retrofitted buildings.  Anyway, I stumbled across an article about Nashville’s Music City Center.  There is good discussion on materials and principles used to address the protection of the building from the negative green roof effects.
