ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Climate change is seen as the greatest challenge to mankind. A big impact of such a change would be felt in cities and buildings. So we have to start thinking and prepare ourselves to adapt and become resilient to this change. Our aim is to design a high performance building that performs not only today, but also thirty years hence when a two degree Celsius rise in air temperature is predicted. We employ the use of an urban farm as the outer envelope and establish a meticulous balance between architectural quality and performance matrix. A novel concept of form follows performance propels the design process. Natural resources of wind and sunlight are utilized to the apex validated by simulations thus aiming to achieve a benchmark energy consumption of 150 kWh/m2.yr.||Source Title:||10th International Conference on Healthy Buildings 2012||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/114051||ISBN:||9781627480758|
