I can give you a litle history. "Prairie school" architect John van Bergen designed many homes with "ponded roofs" the idea was that evaporating water would somehow cool the structure.
He was a draftsman for Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Burley Griffin. I think he was doing ponded roofs in the 1930's
Go to the website : http://www.rebuilding.com/johnvanbergen/title.html to see his designs and some drawings.

I am in the final planing stage for a new house that will have a roof pond to cover approximately 700 sqf of the roof. Any advise on waterproofing materials, pond roof design considerations, etc would be much appreciated.

A pond of water on a roof structure that cools a building by evaporation. Because the water increases the thermal mass of the building, it also increases the gain in solar energy, storing the absorbed energy during the day, when it is abundant, for later use.
