Insufficient green areas are gradually changing the climate of urban. Air pollution has become a major problem of the urban. Thus, green roofs have become a necessity for architecture. In this study, firstly the concept of green roof, the advantages and disadvantages of green roofs, their applicability and its place in the design of the structure as an architectural element are tried to be elaborated. Then, the green roof samples in Turkey and other countries are analyzed and compared.
