Discover how to implement cutting edge sustainable architectural practices, in vertical developments at Foster + Partners South Beach mixed-use precinct.
The South Beach development occupies an entire city block in downtown Singapore, situated between the Marina Center and the Civic District. A sustainable urban quarter, the project combines new construction with the restoration of existing buildings and brings together places to live and work with shops, cafes, restaurants, a hotel, and new public spaces. A broad landscaped pedestrian avenue – a green spine – weaves through the site and is protected by a large canopy, which shelters the light-filled spaces beneath, from the extremes of the tropical climate.
On tour, hear Roland Schnizer's view on activating new precincts through retail, residential and commercial strategies tailored to the urban context.
