A 51-story, 280-m-tall mixed-use skyscraper under construction in Singapore’s Raffles Place has a striking design designboom describes as a “tropical green oasis.” Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Carlo Ratti Associates are behind the concept, with Singapore firm RSP serving as project architect. CapitaLand Ltd. is the developer. Containing 635,000 sq. ft. of office space, nearly 300 residences, a two-story food market, retail and public space, the building’s façade peels back to reveal lush greenery at the base, core and rooftop. In addition to ample communal space, the structure will be outfitted with sensors, Internet of Things and artificial-intelligence technology to provide a “seamless user experience.” Completion is anticipated in 2021.
