Gallery: Singapore’s Ecological EDITT Tower

 

Currently pending construction in Singapore, the EDITT Tower will be a paragon of “Ecological Design In The Tropics”. Designed by TR Hamzah & Yeang and sponsored by the National University of Singapore, the 26-story high-rise will boast photovoltaic panels, natural ventilation, and a biogas generation plant all wrapped within an insulating living wall that covers half of its surface area. The verdant skyscraper was designed to increase its location’s bio-diversity and rehabilitate the local ecosystem in Singapore’s ‘zeroculture’ metropolis.

    Ken Yeang is the future. This is what urban areas will have to become. Increase biomass, increase air-quality, decrease temperature/heat island effect. This guy is the real deal…

    Looks like something someone built with their feet instead of their hands. More copycats from the west and less originality. What else can we come to expect from Asia?

    A very good-looking building – reminiscent of a tropical canapy too. This is way more attractive than most of the high-rise buildings that come across this post. It would be amazing to see the details and inerior elevations of this project. I think it would reveal even more beauty and practicality — and I believe the users of the spaces will experience a high level of enjoyment. This is progress.
