Sustainable architecture in Singapore

Three architecture firms show how they’re aiming to reach a net zero goal

SINGAPORE has set itself the lofty goal of achieving net zero in greenhouse emissions in 2050, in addition to its 2030 sustainability targets. In tomorrow's edition of BTLifestyle, three architecture firms show how they're making headway in reaching that goal. Their efforts can be seen in projects such as SOM's 8 Shenton Way, which claims to be one of Asia's most sustainable skyscrapers with outdoor terraces throughout the 63-storey building; AR43 Architect's Frontier at NUS, a hanging garden that houses a canteen and student centre; and F&B group SaladStop!'s first net-zero outlet in CapitaSpring.
