This first of its kind system is ready for the extreme weather conditions that are forecast for NYC in the 21st century.The roof terrace porcelain pavers shown were developed in Europe by Mirage, the Italian manufacturer, and designed to be mechanically clipped down into place onto the multi level aluminum framing.
