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.”
