Grass Grows Greener on this Singapore Roof
The five-story building was built as part of a three-block campus site – what is ultimately slated to be a $2 billion undertaking. A first glimpse of this stunning structure is almost hypnotic: it is impossible to pull your eyes from it. The sculptured grass roof has been accented with much in the way of reflective materials: plentiful glass windows, a sunken garden and water pools. All reflections of this creation appear to belong as if they have always been there, a graceful potpourri of dramatic lines and shapes.
