Green architecture, which aids the development of sustainable building structures, is the need at the moment as we fight against the possible potential threats of global warming.

But, I couldn't see many images posted on this thread showcasing commercial or residential areas being converted into green parks. We need more and more gardens and green parks to reduce the possible ill effects of global warming.

I'm amazed at how similar that is to Eastside City Park, Birmingham (UK). Also former railway and industrial ground.

Should look at twinning.
