Dense + Green: Innovative Building Types for Sustainable Urban Architecture (Basel: Birkhäuser, 2016) by Thomas Schroepfer was launched on 19 February 2016. The book explores innovations in architectural typologies that emerge from the integration of green components, such as sky terraces, green facades, and vertical parks, in high-density buildings. In-depth case studies of various building types are presented with analytical drawings prepared exclusively for this book. International experts provide information on the technical and ecological as well as the landscape and urban design implications of the dense and green paradigm.
The event was hosted by SUTD’s Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities.
