Casa Verde: Design-Savvy Green Roof

The School of Art, Design, and Media at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore was constructed in 2006. Located in a wooded valley, the building is at once spare, modern, and verdant. The building's design was conceived as three intertwining blocks that appear to be natural extensions from the ground. The green roof, which blends with the lawn, is a functional space that is easily accessible via sidesteps along the roof edge. This allows for a scenic outdoor communal space while helping to lower the roof temperature and adding to the green space in the area.
