|Abstract:||Using data from the high-rise, high-density city of Singapore, this paper examines residents' perceptions and expectations of rooftop gardens in Singapore. In particular, it discusses: To what extent is the roof gardens being used? Why do local residents visit roof gardens? What benefits do local residents perceive? The discussion has implications for the potential of rooftop greening, a new but increasingly common addition of open space in today's growing urban areas. With the continuing trend towards urbanization and taller buildings, rooftop spaces stand to offer residents doorstep green oasis in the skyline of high-rise buildings. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
