Green house, green engineering : environmental design at Gardens By the Bay. Novato (Calif. This book explores the sustainable design principles and innovative engineering behind the development of two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories or biomes. Nestled within waterfront gardens, the biomes are the centrepiece of a development that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city: gardens that are on track to become a national and international exemplar of sustainable practice.

Exploring the sustainable design principles and engineering behind two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories, this book showcases biomes that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city.

Cooled Conservatories, Gardens by the Bay are the biggest cooled greenhouses in the world and a key project in the Singapore Government’s vision of transforming it into a ‘City in a Garden’

Cooled Conservatories, Gardens by the Bay are the biggest cooled greenhouses in the world and a key project in the Singapore Government’s vision of transforming it into a ‘City in a Garden’. More significantly, the Prime Minister spoke of the lessons Singapore could learn from the green technologies employed within the Gardens so that once ‘economics’ allowed they could be implemented more widely within Singapore creating a green and more sustainable city.

The thrust of the narrative considers the environmental design and engineering approach of Atelier Ten; other voices reflect upon the landscape, architectural and structural engineering issues that confronted the core members of the integrated design team.

The book explores the sustainable design principles and innovative engineering behind the development of two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories or biomes.

Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares (250 acres) of reclaimed land in the Central Region of Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. The park consists of three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden (in Marina South), Bay East Garden (in Marina East) and Bay Central Garden (in Downtown Core and Kallang). The largest of the gardens is the Bay South Garden at 54 hectares (130 acres) designed by Grant Associates. Its Flower Dome is the largest glass greenhouse in the world.

Gardens by the Bay is an Institution of Public Character and registered charity under the Charities Act, and is proud to receive the Charity Transparency Award 2019. The Gardens has a strong public service element as a national garden that presents wide-ranging floral displays and community programmes to a broad segment of the population.

The book explores the sustainable design principles and innovative engineering behind the development of two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories or biomes. Nestled within waterfront gardens, the biomes are the centrepiece of a development that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city: gardens that are on track to become a national and international exemplar of sustainable practice. Through a combination of photographs, graphics and narratives, the book explores the challenges of building two huge enclosures to recreate, in Singapore's naturally sunny, hot and humid environment, the ideal growing conditions for plants from cool-dry Mediterranean regions and the cool-moist conditions of tropical mountain regions. While the thrust of the narrative will consider the environmental design and engineering approach of Atelier Ten, three other voices reflect upon the landscape, architectural and structural engineering issues that confronted the core members of the integrated design team.As environmental engineers Atelier Ten developed highly innovative passive and active environmental strategies for controlling conditions within the conservatories, while minimising energy demand to exemplar levels. Outside the Biomes the unique Supertree structures house components of the systems that provide cool and dry air to the biomes and also incorporate photovoltaic panels to generate power. The systems run mainly on tree-thinnings - waste material generated by Singapore's National Parks maintenance programme - which are being diverted from landfill to be used as a source of biomass to generate energy and heat. The landscaping incorporates extensive natural water treatment devices to control, attenuate and cleanse the enormous flows of water from the biome roof areas and the hard landscaping areas during tropical storms. These have been seamlessly integrated into the hard and soft landscaping which comes to life during the frequent deluges that are characteristic of the tropical climate. In addition, Atelier Ten have developed sustainable management matrices to establish agreed principles of design and construction to exceed benchmarks establish by LEED™, Singapore's BCA Green Mark scheme and One Planet Living approaches.
