Additional Details

Millennium Park is essentially a vegetated roof that covers underground parking and a rail yard and is considered the world's largest rooftop garden! Hydrotech is proud to say that Monolithic Membrane 6125 is keeping those trains and cars protected. The Jay Pritzker Pavillion, designed by Frank Gehry, is the centerpiece of the park and looks out over a lush lawn that was completed with Hydrotech's Garden Roof Assembly.
