Green Roof Art school in Singapore
By Frederick Carle on March 30th, 2008
This amazing architecture is situated in Singapore at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University. It’s a 5 story facility with an all glass façade to provide a high performance building envelope that reduces solar gain and heat load while allowing the benefits of natural views and daylight into creative spaces.
Finishes are intentionally raw to act as a backdrop for the art, media and design projects. Concrete walls and columns, cement-sand screeded floors, timber railings and a neutral palette define the interior spaces which vary in shape and size. This amazing design seems to offer a new experience at every elevation or perspective fulfilling the intent that a school for art should inspire creativity.
