Dense and Green Building Typologies: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem

Future Cities Laboratory (FCL)

‘Dense and Green Building Typologies: Architecture as Urban Ecosystem’ is part of the ‘Time
Space Existence’ exhibition hosted by the European Cultural Centre (ECC) at Palazzo Mora in
Venice. It is presented as part of the 16th Venice Architecture Biennale from 26 May to 25
November 2018.

The six projects are among the cases studied as part of the ‘Dense and Green Building
Typologies’ research project at the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL), in collaboration with the
Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The research project seeks to develop
design strategies and innovative approaches to high-density architecture and urban design,
taking into account the range of benefits of greenery in and around buildings, including: urban
design, architectural, environmental, social, and economic benefits.

The FCL is a programme of the Singapore-ETH Centre, jointly established by ETH Zurich – the
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich and Singapore’s National Research Foundation,
as part of its CREATE campus.
