pg 102 – As environmental designers we are frequently faced with a brief that seeks sustainable outcomes from the delivery of the building or buildings for a predetermined purpose that we cannot control. In these situations, we believe that it falls to us to make the most of the resources at our disposal both form the local climate and environment. In addition, we must endeavour to not just ” do more with less” as buckminster fuller would have said but to seek out and initiate virtuous cycles where the development of the project can be beneficial to local environment and not just less bad.

Within the integrated and highly complex processes and systems that have been instigated for the Gardens by the Bay there is a level of rigour to the sustainable thinking that sets it apart as an exemplar for buildings in the region and around the world.
