Dense+Green Cities: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem has been published by Birkhäuser in January 2020. The book and the accompanying exhibition explore the interaction between buildings and the city as ecological systems through questions of concept, planning, design, technology and not least experience. They highlight the dimensions of ‘green building’ discussed in international expert essays, analysed through benchmark case studies, and presented with analytical drawings – in an effort to understand and evaluate some of the most innovative dense and green cities of recent years in Asia, the Americas and Europe.
Dense+Green Cities: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem is based on five-year research project conducted at the Singapore-ETH Centre Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).
