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 ten 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 #1:
The Post-Crisis City: Rethinking Sustainable Vertical Urbanism
Each apartment in The Mandragore would have an office, reducing commuting to work, pollution, energy, etc. With its various measures to decarbonize the air using passive energies and green infrastructure, the Mandragore proposes going beyond simply being carbon-neutral, making the building carbon negative.
A notch of space in the rear of the Ekspozita Building provides a diagonal slice of air and divides two sides of commercial development on the ground floor. The large vegetated terraces act as passive solar regulators, creating a green oasis.
A radical departure from the glass and steel tower typology, EDEN is designed to mature like a sapling that has taken root beneath the streets, pulling the landscape of Singapore up into the sky.
Vertical Forests: Nanjing & Huanggang
Architect Stefano Boeri says, ”The Vertical Forests in Nanjing and Huanggang are a reference model for sustainable green architecture in china and other southeast Asian countries.”
