Eco roof is visual icon 

Alsop’s first major project in Asia comes in the form of a dramatic redevelopment of the river front district of Clarke Quay in Singapore. Costing €45.3 million, this mixed-use scheme, developed by Capitaland, has transformed the area into a vibrant and attractive destination. Integral to the projects success was the architect’s and engineer’s ability to manipulate the site’s microclimate using a sophisticated shading/cooling system. This system, embedded in the roof, enhances both the project’s visual ingredient and it’s environmental agenda. Phase 1 of the design was completed in March of this year and a dramatic 4-fold increase in foot traffic has marked its success. Commenting from London Alsop said: ‘What is interesting is the addition of a single roof acting as a visual icon has succeeded in attracting people back to Clarke Quay.’
