GIGABYTE's G-HOME / Sustainable Eco-Rooftop

GIGABYTE's G-HOME
GIGABYTE's G-HOME

GIGABYTE, headquartered in Taipei, is the 3C brand company devoted to sustainability. In 2013, we turned our leaking roof into a green G-HOME, the first “sustainable Eco-Roof”. With the concept of learning from nature, we conquered main construction obstacles and brought benefits: low cost, low maintenance efforts, and ecological–centered designs. More than 10 innovation experiments were integrated for environmental education and benefit-cost analysis. We shared experiences to public and successfully encouraged government to take actions in spreading the eco-roof criteria. Connecting every small step, we’ll upgrade our life quality in city.

It is a great concept, which was highly appreciated by the jury. While innovative in many respects, the jury did not see it outperforming in all five dimensions. Given a multitude of similar projects around the globe, the jury was wondering whether the Eco-Rooftop really has a superior Balance of effor and use.
