Green roofs are nothing new, the Vikings were keen as they provide excellent insulation against the cold. There are many living roof buildings in Scandinavia, particularly in Iceland, often dating back many centuries - as shown in the photos below of green roof houses at the folk museum at Glaumbaer.

Dear, Aurelie Wolff

I would like to use one of your green roof photos for a small panel in an exhibit about green roofs. We just had a green roof installed at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The exhibit consist of 3 panels that talk about our green roof and others in the community. But it has one sentence green roofs going back to the middle ages. Your photo is not about a building from the middle ages but would work to illustrate the point. The photo I am talking about is one take at the Glaubaer museum in Iceland, I believe. I would need a high resolution version. This will not be published or used in any way except for a one time temporary exhibit. I would need this ASAP if I have your permission. And of course we would add a credit line any way you would like it to read.
