Within the western region of North America lies Cascadia. Although the boundaries of the region differ depending on ecological, political, economic or cultural lines - it's undeniable that Cascadia is expansive. The climate of Cascadia calls for adaptation of building materials, plants, media, and maintenance models. After years on the east coast, CitiesAlive 2017 is highlighting the necessity of green roofs and walls alongside the region's unique characteristics.
