The "Green Heart" exhibition showcases the "Marina One" project by ingenhoven
architects, which will open in the center of Singapore at the end of 2017. 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 hange, face enormous challenges. The high-density building complex with ist 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. Aedes presents diagrams and interviews with project participants, as well as a documentary film on the architecture. The central element of the exhibition is a spectacular five meter high space sculpture which brings to life the unique shape of the "Marina One" buildings.
