2020 Plus a Look into 2021 Top 10 Hot List, 11 Categories, 11 Week Countdown
As promised since my 2020 Top 10 List of Hot RESILIENT Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design Plus a Look into 2021 video is perhaps for some, a bit long at just under an hour, we cut up my 14th installment of the yearly Top 10 Hot List into categories to make it easier (quicker) to watch.
You can see them all on our 2020 Top 10 List of Hot RESILIENT Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design Plus a Look into 2021 Playlist on our YouTube channel.
Greenroofs.com inaugurated the “Top 10 Hot List” in 2007, and the current 2020 Plus a Look into 2021 video is packed with extremely important, awesome, and inspiring projects located across six continents.
This is installation number eight in the 11-part series counting down my yearly “Greenroofs.com Top 10 List of Hot Trends in Greenroof & Greenwall Design” by category, this year modified with the very important RESILIENT in front of “Trends.”
And new this year, for 2020 I’ve defined the Top 10 categories in terms of their Resiliency application.
2020 Plus a Look into 2021 Top 10 Hot List Category #3:
Timber Rising for Climate Change Policy
Canada Earth Tower
A tower rises up from a U-shaped podium wrapping an entry courtyard with plants, trees and seating. On the south face of the building, communal gardens are found at every third floor, as part of the project’s goal is to “support community and dramatically improve livability in tall, urban residential buildings.”
Atlassian Sydney Headquarters
Supported by the steel exoskeleton, the tower will be divided into 6 distinct but interconnected habitats or “neighborhoods” interlaced with a network of vertical parks. The new headquarters is designed to accommodate 4,000 workers in Sydney’s new tech district and the design will help the company achieve their goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The company says the wooden skyscraper will offer “a view of biodiversity in an urban setting in which people can enjoy fresh outside air, rich natural elements and sunshine filtering through foliage.”
