Blueprint Awards 2018: Marina One nominated
Marina One in Singapore is nominated for the Blueprint Awards 2018 in the category "best sustainable project". The awards are hosted by the eponymous British architecture magazine "Blueprint" and its publisher Johnny Tucker. Marina One in Singapore is to date the largest project by ingenhoven architects. As an international role model for living and working, Marina One makes an innovative contribution to the discourse on mega-cities, especially in tropical regions, which, in the context of increasing population and climate change, face enormous challenges. Marina One was selected by an independent jury, including Amanda Levete, Ben van Berkel and Daniel Libeskind.
The high-density building complex with its mix of uses extends to over 400,000 square meters and, with its group of four high-rise buildings, defines the Green Heart—a public space extending over several stories. This three-dimensional green oasis reflects the diversity of tropical flora.
Marina One comprises four high-rise buildings which accommodate office, residential and retail functions and have been rated under the Green Mark Platinum and LEED Platinum schemes. The two office towers each have a usable floor area of 175,000 square meters; the two residential towers provide 1,042 city apartments and penthouses for about 3,000 residents.
The Blueprint Awards ceremony will be held in London on Thursday, October 11th.
