Challenge Title: Rooftop Garden Design Challenge
Challenge Difficulty: Intermediate
Estimated Time to Complete: 48 hours
Required Tools/Resources: Sketching materials, computer software for design visualization, access to rooftop space

Objective

Design a functional and aesthetically pleasing rooftop garden that maximizes green space utilization and promotes sustainability.

Research

Conduct research on existing rooftop garden designs, sustainable gardening practices, and the environmental benefits of rooftop gardens in urban areas.

Materials

Select materials that are durable, weather-resistant, and environmentally friendly. Consider using recycled materials or sustainable options such as reclaimed wood or eco-friendly planters.

Concept Development

Brainstorm ideas for layout, plant selection, irrigation systems, seating arrangements, and lighting. Explore innovative solutions for vertical gardening or incorporating edible plants into the design.

Deliverables

  1. Concept sketches illustrating the layout and key features of the rooftop garden.
  2. 3D model or renderings showcasing the design from different perspectives.
  3. Plant selection list with details on maintenance requirements.
  4. Budget estimate for implementing the design.

Evaluation Criteria

Projects will be evaluated based on creativity in design concept, functionality of the proposed solutions (e.g., irrigation system efficiency), sustainability practices incorporated into the design (e.g., use of rainwater harvesting), and overall aesthetic appeal of the rooftop garden layout.
