Reflections  Daniel Libeskind

Sustainability in architecture becomes an increasingly pressing issue, and even the architecture superstars, notoriously accustomed to these issues, they begin to have consideration. “Reflections at Keppel Bay” which was designed by Daniel Libeskind, is the first intervention in Asia by the Polish architect, as a complex eco-friendly features six towers of different height and orientation, with the arched shape has already been tried for CityLife complex in Milan. Made of anodized aluminum and glass stand, reflecting precisely on the Keppel Bay in Singapore, occupying an area of no less than 84,000 m 2 in which the green predominates and around the complex to help maintain an indoor climate as well as the fight against global buildings with roof gardens on the terraces.

The study of shading, which always has been important for the climate comfort of buildings, is applied in a manner wise to the different positioning of the towers which are made up by combining with each other in a game of angles and heights, in this way each of the 1129 unit has optimal natural lighting as well as a different view of the beautiful bay.

The application of different systems of green technology such as sensors for detecting carbon monoxide, the supply of energy through solar panels, the use of LED lighting and artificial rainwater collection for irrigation, have earned the project the BCA Green Mark Gold Award.
