How is this even possible!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, some architects can be “too” creative.
Because of the ridiculous changing type of architecture, our dear santa sometimes have to keep up with the times!
Structural engineers have their opinions about architects. The relationship between the two requires synergy, but sometimes the architect’s “vision” conflicts with the engineer’s sense of construct-ability.
HAHA! Its funny how the cartoonist drawn in the Santiago Calatrava into the man’s hair.
A hot topic amongst all of us, I always ask myself, what do I consider a sustainable design?
A green building which generates energy by itself, but seems to be isolated from the surroundings. Is that considered sustainable?
A land development that makes money on function and takes away the touch of history. Sustainable?
I am from Singapore, and therefore I have many questions on how Singaporean developers manages the issue of Sustainability in Singapore.
So many developments but is there a time that Singapore considered about sustaining its heritage?
Everywhere I go, people talks about money-making projects. Every developer I meet, its all about how a building can generate income, instead of appreciating the architecture.
Although I have to admit that Singapore has done a good job preserving our shophouses that represents the heritage of Singapore, most of the places have lost its identity.
When there is a Question about a defination of Singapore, What picture comes out?
The Esplanade. Which has nothing to do with the Singapore history at all.
Sustainable Design is the Dedication to exhibit greater environmental responsibility through Energy Efficient, Lowering Life Cycle Building costs. It reduces the possible negative effects on the environment as far as possible and makes the most of social and economic benefits. A win-win solution that provides benefits to the environment, users and use. The goal of sustainable design is to sensibly meet the needs of the present without exhausting resources that are critical to future generations.
