EDITT Tower in Singapore

“The EDITT Tower (Ecological Design In The Tropics) is set to be built in downtown Singapore. It’s design integrates a gray water system, central recycling, passive heating and cooling and solar panels. Half of the surface area of the building will be covered in local, organic vegetation. If that isn’t enough, sewage from the building’s inhabitants will be converted into biogas. Go Poo Power!”

    I am sure this started out as some kind of joke, but I think it’s a wonderful idea! We are getting so boxed in we don’t think outside of that box. How wonderful it would be if everything in “Our World” were alive. (except for humans and animals)they are alive in our world also. Keep this in mind when you speak to Colbert again

      Fora.tv recently posted a speech by Dan Winey, the Managing Principal for the Asia Pacific Region with Gensler, about another sustainable building design for a tower in Singapore. It uses an outer skin to relieve wind load and house 14 story atriums at multiple levels. It captures rainwater, graywater, Water demand reduced by 40%, includes wind turbine, and greatly reduces the structural materials needed.

      See what you think…
