This book explores the sustainable design principles and innovative engineering behind the development of two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories or biomes. Nestled within waterfront gardens, the biomes are the centerpiece of a development that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city: gardens that are on track to become a national and international exemplar of sustainable practice.
The thrust of the narrative considers the environmental design and engineering approach of Atelier Ten; other voices reflect upon the landscape, architectural and structural engineering issues that confronted the core members of the integrated design team. With essays from Patrick Bellew, teacher at Yale University School of Architecture from 2000 - 2009, Meredith Davey of the UK Environmental Design Practice, Paul Baker of Wilkinson Eyre, and Andrew Grant of Grant Associates.
