The roof of the Vancouver BC Convention Centre is covered with over 2.5 hectares (6 acres) of native grassland. Usually closed to the public, Dave Budge was able to get a tour and interview with the landscape architect of the project, Bruce Hemstock.

Music: "Andvari" by Sigur Rós

Dave Budge
was an interactive designer for 10 years but got sick of sitting in front of a computer making websites for companies and things he didn't care to much about.  So he left to make videos about things he do care about. He is now outside a lot of the time and get to meet great people, but still sit in front of a computer too much. He lives in Melbourne, Australia.
