UNStudio and DP Architects complete phase one of sustainable Singapore University of Technology & Design

The architects focused particularly on passive building design and used solar and wind studies to determine energy efficient locations, shapes, and orientations for the campus buildings. The buildings are optimized for natural ventilation, shading, and light. The heavily landscaped and green-roofed campus features low-water native species to reduce the urban heat island effect and to counteract Singapore’s tropical climate. The walkable campus also includes protection from rainy season’s heavy downpours and louvered facade shading to shield against the harsh sun.
