11. Garden City/Mega City: Rethinking Cities for the Age of Global Warming
Garden City/Mega City at the Skyscraper Museum features the work of WOHA, the Singapore architects Wong Mun Summa and Richard Hasseil. They are well-known for designing tropical towers enveloped by nature, and for creating vertical villages with sky gardens, breezeways, and elevated parks. This exhibit focuses on twelve projects that illustrate the firm’s philosophy and strategies in vertical density.
The projects are represented in models, renderings, photographs and film. The exhibition also previews WOHA’s upcoming volume Garden City/Mega City: Rethinking Cities in the Age of Global Warming, to be published by Pesaro Publishing in May, 2016. The exhibit will be on view through September 4, 2016 at The Skyscraper Museum in Battery Park City, located at 39 Battery Place.
