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.

2020 Plus a Look into 2021 Top 10 Hot List Category #9

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 two 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.

While the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen has a large footprint overall, its effect on the environment is diminished due the ‘bowl-like’ form of the architecture rising into the sky.

2 Murray Road:

Designed to withstand the region’s powerful summer typhoons, the curved glass façade of 2 Murray Road also helps to blur the boundary between the building’s interiors and the surrounding gardens and city beyond.

Sancaklar Mosque:

The Sancaklar Mosque project constantly plays off the tension between man-made and natural, and the architect says the mosque becomes almost one with both the hill and the valley through its surface borrowed from nature.

That’s It for This Week
