Judging comments:

Nice job combining a number of measures into one project that could have a natural relationship. There is no silver bullet, so we will need to integrate these types of technologies to make a significant impact.

I see all endeavors as feasible, but a structural engineer will need to be involved to approve any and all anchoring mechanisms for both canopy and green facade. I do not approve the green wall proposal which is a soil-based vertical green wall. I do approve a green facade which is a trellis-based vertical green wall which trains vines that are growing up out of the ground.

Green facades are significantly less maintenance, but it will be important to ensure that the vines don't grow into the siding or windows or flashing of a building. It will therefore be important to secure funding to prune the vines, which will probably include renting a piece of lifting equipment.

I wish I knew more about the effectiveness of the Zebra stripes, but they sound and look cool. Is there a case study you could site?
Your graphics are strong.

In addition to the questions below, can you also give some insight into maintenance?

We look forward to seeing your ideas finalized in the next iteration!
