There is something catchy about this green roof. It’s something reminiscent of a project of mine from my studio days. As a strong believer in merging site and building, I had to take a second look at the School of Art, Design & Media at Nanyang Technological University campus, Singapore.

The two arms embrace the landscape and they emerge from the earth to create grassy public space in an unexpected place. However, the courtyard in between seems closed off. To fight this the designers have added a myriad of features: water, palm trees, islands, ect. I would love to see a building like this engage in an existing site in a way that it would be minimally altered.

How about some close ups of the curtain wall and interior shots? Next time I’m in Singapore. . .
