We are excited to introduce a new video series that explores tropical and biophilic architecture. Starting off with the series is SDE4 of NUS School of Design and Environment, my alma mater.

It has been 3 years since the completion of SDE4, and plants are starting to take over and integrate into this biophilic building. I revisited the school in 2022 in this latest architectural project documentation.


The building has various sustainable features, deliberately using raw and natural characteristics of the materials for steel, concrete and perforated metal, that is of enhanced quality and blends in well with the surrounding natural elements. For a comparison of how nature has integrated into the building over time, do check out my previous documentation 2 years ago.
