Dense+Green Cities: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem – the exhibition – will be featured at the National Design Centre Singapore from March to June 2020 in conjunction with the publication of the book Dense+Green Cities: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem (Birkhäuser 2020). Dense+Green Cities explores the interaction between buildings and the city as ecological systems through questions of concept, planning, design, technology and not least experience. It highlights the dimensions of “green building” discussed in international expert essays, analysed through benchmark case studies, and presented with analytical drawings – to evaluate some of the most innovative dense and green cities of recent years in Asia, the Americas and Europe.

Dense+Green Cities is based on a 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).
