This thesis examines reasons why the Children’s Hospital Minneapolis campus is a location that benefits from a therapeutic green roof. Healing Heights will bring meaning and life to an otherwise conventional roof that is advantageous for people and the environment. Researching critical factors that influence green infrastructure help determine elements that are included in the design to improve the users’ mental and physical health, as well as the building’s environmental impacts. Looking at urban healing gardens, there is a list of criteria that need to be met to design a properly constructed vegetated roof.
