NTU wins Platinum Award from BCA for sustainable design
Date:5/19/2011

ady secured more than $830 million in sustainability research. In addition, the NTU Campus Masterplan, which will guide the physical development of our campus over the next 15-25 years, is also based on sustainability principles. In fact, in the upcoming new academic year, all first-year undergraduates will take a compulsory course in environmental sustainability."

Sustainable Earth is one of the five multi-disciplinary Peaks of Excellence that NTU plans to put a global stamp on, besides Future Healthcare, New Media, New Silk Road and Innovation Asia.

The ADM building is the brainchild of Dr Timothy Seow, Principal Architect at CPG Consultants. Completed in July 2006 at a cost of $38 million, it was officially opened in April 2009. Today, it is regarded as an icon of sophisticated design and architecture, and has been featured in various international design publications.

The four-storey building, with its eye-catching sloped 'grass roofs', was designed to blend in with NTU's garden campus setting. Beyond being an aesthetic feature that doubles as a scenic outdoor communal space, the green roofs keep the ambient temperature low and reduce heat in the daytime. In addition, the reflective pond in the central courtyard provides a cool visual respite for those gazing out of the classrooms, laboratories and offices that overlook it.

The eco-friendly building houses some of the most advanced media facilities, including a variety of digital laboratories and photography, film, animation and media studios. The School also boasts a comprehensive fine arts library, two art galleries and an auditorium that can seat up to 445 people.

This is not the first award for the ADM building. It was one of the four international entries that received the Honour Award in the 2007 DesignShare Awards Programme for Innovative Learning Environments. The building was cited for its simple yet unique design at the annual awards.
