As with many tall buildings this project has the potential to become an iconic specimen.
I appreciate the approach of utilising plants in the facade to cool the building and aid in cleaning the air. The airflow is expressed in a diagram of the podium, but not the rest of the building. I would like to see more detail on this.
With Singapore's dense urban fabric, especially close to Marina bay, I believe it would be beneficial to elaborate on the surrounding context and even the climate of the site. How would the neighboring buildings influence the airflow and sun exposure of the skyscraper?
The visual perception of and from the building can be explored. How would this building look like from street view? What would you see from the building?
I enjoy the complexity of the podium, its roof and openings. The podium does reduce the scale to a human level to some extent. Could you possibly use building elements on the street interface to reduce the scale to a human level?
Can you elaborate on the choice of plants as well as the tree museum?
All the best.
It is a design of a Sky Scraper. Project site was in Central Boulevard,Singapore. The main idea was to treat a tower as a plant, creating more breathing space by providing more green facades.
Use of green double facades to create more breathing spaces in between the office spaces. In podium roof the tree museum also an iconic scope for the tower users to enjoy the floors of the tower. Gradual step up entry by experiencing the gigantic podium roof is also an iconic feature for the scraper.
1. Double green facades for tower users.
2. Gigantic roof to create enclosure in the podium roof
