In 1981, Allianz decided to build their local headquarters in the heart of Stuttgart, and its green roof was designed and created by a team consisting of Jörg Breuning, CEO at Green Roof Service LLC/Green Roof Technology, architecture firm Brümmendorf, Müller, Murr, Reichmann, and landscape architect Prof. Hans Luz.

The team worked together to lower the environmental footprint of the building by utilizing porous pavements for the green roofs. 30 years later, the greenery is still growing strong, and is a model inspiration for similar buildings around the world.
