'Grass' Covered Schools



Working in Murcia (Spain) recently I have passed a school several times that appears to be covered in something resembling 'artificial grass'.  When I say covered - I mean the entire building is covered as the photographs show.  It is the strangest thing I think I have ever seen on the external elevation of a building!

I don't know the architect or reason behind the design.  It's one of those things that I keep meaning to find out.

I guess that there is a really good design reason for it... it's just that I cannot think of it!
