COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State University’s first publicly accessible green roof is open to visitors at Howlett Hall on the campus of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
The green roof, or rooftop garden, is part of the university’s Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens.
The 12,000-square-foot green roof was installed in August and September on the back of Howlett Hall, 2001 Fyffe Court over the building’s extended ground floor. Previously, the roof was accessible through a first-floor conference room, which had been built with a doorway to allow people to step out onto the roof.
