When it comes to green roofed ecotecture, few projects come close to the sheer scale or size of the Vulcano Buono by Renzo Piano.

'Vulcano Buono' literally translates as 'good volcano' in Italian, and when you check out this building's staggering architecture and unfathomably massive green roof it's definitely not hard to see why the name is applicable. Although designed as a commercial space complete with a theatre, a hotel and hundreds of shops, where the Vulcano Buono really shines is with its green design elements. Draped all around its sloping circular exterior of concentric circles are over 2,500 plants and even a pine forest. Stats for Gargantuan Crater Complexes Trending: Older & Chilly
