Safdie Architects has announced plans for a distinctive example of re-imagined urban living, designed by Moshe Safdie for mixed-income use. Unveiled in Singapore this week by Capital Land Residential Singapore and Mitsubishi Estate Asia, developers of the project, the new housing complex will be located on a 129,137-square-foot site in the heart of Bishan Central—one of Singapore’s most significant outlying residential areas. The condominium complex will comprise approximately 509 apartments, across two 38-story towers, and will incorporate private terraces, many common public spaces, and sky gardens. The design has been evolved from Safdie’s groundbreaking Habitat ‘67 by the architect and his firm, in a series of recent such projects, also including Golden Dream Bay in Qinhuangdao, China.

Article source: Integrated Design Associates

The new airport, designated as the country’s second international gateway, is located on an island with very limited land mass for an international airport of this size. With airfield infrastructure consuming nearly all the available land our concept of a “floating terminal” has been selected by the Government for its innovative, exciting and eco-friendly approach. The proposed terminal is built entirely on stilts over water without reclamation to preserve the existing environment and the natural coastline. With blue sea, white sandy beach as backdrop the new airport aims to provide passengers with a unique and memorable travel experience.

The Glacier Discovery Walk is envisioned as an extension of the fractal landscape that defines the Columbia Icefields in Canada’s Jasper National Park. Located along the edge of this dramatic escarpment, the project weaves a continuous thread of experience through united geometric and material forms. This sinuous experience defines the Discovery Walk not only as a singular destination, but as a catalyst and gateway that empowers guests to immerse themselves in the untouched natural environment.
