Green Roof Art School

If art school was in our future we might opt to study under, or on top of,the amazing green roof at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. This 5 story facility sweeps a woodedcorner of the campus with an organic, vegetated form that blends landscapeand structure, nature and high-tech and symbolizes the creativity it houses.

The glass fa├žade provides a high performance building envelope that reduces solar gain and heat load while allowing the benefits of natural views and daylight into creative spaces. The glass walls provide a visual exchange between indoors and out allowing students and teachers to experience the building, the surrounding landscape and the interior plaza as fluid spaces. Diffused natural daylight is abundant throughout studios and classrooms, filtered through the surrounding foliage.
