Molly Meyer


Her living systems are bringing new life to sustainable design
31, Owner and Founder
Omni Ecosystems; Rooftop Green Works

Since founding Omni Ecosystems and Rooftop Green Works in 2009, Molly Meyer and her staff have developed a quartet of living sustainable systems, including a comprehensive green roof, integrated permeable paver walkway, ultra-lightweight green facade system and a lush, low-maintenance living wall. The green roofs accommodate a greater array of plant options while achieving weights far lighter than equivalent systems, the result of a tray system and the ultra-lightweight growing media that Meyer and her collaborators developed. Since 2011, Meyer has served on the board of the nonprofit Urban Habitat Chicago
