I would start by using a topography? Might be able to play around with the depth of it. although I was trying to figure out how to do this just recently but had no luck. Revit 2011 has pretty decent organic modelling features now, just need to read into it and use the help.

Just create a "Mass" then apply "Roof by face" where in your roof properties you can change the thickness and the material.

I'm actually having a crack at doing this as well. i have begun by creating a mass but I can't find out how to place points on top of a mass so I can pull these points up and down to give the undulating effect. 

 

Is this possible?

closest I can get is by dividing surface into a grid then showing nodes but I can not manipulate the heights of the nodes Sad
