Guess again, because EDITT Tower (“Ecological Design In The Tropics”) will be built in Singapore with the financial support of their National. I think the “Garden State” could do with a few buildings that take some inspiration from the planned EDITT Tower in Singapore by Ken Yeang. Singapore’s 26 storey EDITT Tower, designed by architects T R Hamzah & Yeang, is being created to rehabilitate an urban, non-organic site.

Ken Yeang, EDITT Tower – The Urbanist
The building has also been designed for future adaptability, with many walls and floors that can be moved or removed. The tower will be constructed using many recycled and recyclable materials, and a centralized recycling system will be accessible from each floor. Thanks Lloyd Alter of Treehugger.
Ken Yeang is the future. This is what urban areas will have sibgapore become. This guy is the real deal Looks like something someone built with their feet instead of their hands. More copycats from the west and less originality.

What else can we come to expect from Asia? A very good-looking building – reminiscent of a tropical canapy too. This is way more attractive than most of the high-rise buildings that come across this post. It would be amazing to see the details and inerior elevations of this project.
I think it would reveal even more beauty and practicality — and I believe the users of the spaces will experience a high level of enjoyment.
