An Entire Forest…in an Apartment Building!

marina-one-singapore-4Singapore is currently working on a 376 000 square foot landscaping project. But it’s not like any other – it’s a project that aims to construct Singapore’s largest urban sanctuary. Named “Green Heart,” the architecture blends together the environmental aspects with culture and economy.

Included in the designs are numerous reflection pools, waterfalls, and a multi-level public garden. Nicknamed “cloud forests,” there are numerous additional plant beds that scale the walls to give the appearance of a forest that stretches up high above the ground, literally floating in the air to reach such amazing heights.

Various pathways connect Green Heart to the surrounding business district, integrating the sense of nature into the physical economy.  It’s a great way to get people to think more environmentally, especially if you’re living in one of the 4 apartment walls surrounding the Green Heart!
