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. 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. Aedes presents diagrams and interviews with project participants, as well as a documentary film on the architecture.Save this picture!© HG EschSave this picture!First Level PlanSave this picture!© HG EschThe 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. Today, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in cities. This number will increase to 70 percent in the next three decades. By 2050, the world’s population will increase to nine or ten billion. In urban agglomerations, this growth cannot be accommodated without high-rise buildings. The core concept for “Marina One”, which consists of a group of four high-rise buildings, is based on a shared central space—the “Green Heart”—which was designed by ingenhoven architects in close cooperation with landscape architects Gustafson Porter + Bowman.Save this picture!© HG EschThe interaction between the geometry of the buildings and the garden facilitates natural ventilation and generates an agreeable microclimate. The largest public landscaped area in the Marina Bay Central Business District of Singapore provides living space close to nature, the usable area of which is 125 percent of the original site surface area. 
”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.Save this picture!SectionThe organic shape of the building complex with its iconic louvres and the generous planting contribute to an improvement of the microclimate and increase biodiversity. Inspired by Asian paddy field terraces, the green centre formed by the four towers—with its multi-story three-dimensional gardens—reflects the diversity of tropical flora and creates a new habitat. This “Green Heart” comprises over 350 different types of trees and plants, including 700 trees, on a landscaped area of 37,000 square meters. Various types of the animal become part of this biological diversity.

 Inspired by the natural climate changes at the different vertical levels of a rainforest, the landscape architecture mimics a green valley with its variations in climate according to level.
Save this picture!© HG EschRestaurants and cafés, retail areas, a fitness club, pool, supermarket, food court, and events areas on the different open terraces not only provide products and services to the residents, office workers, and visitors—they also create a place for social interaction.
 The compact and efficient layout design is complemented by energy-saving ventilation systems, highly effective external solar screening devices, and glazing that reduces solar radiation into the building. Direct connections to four of Singapore’s six mass rapid transport lines, bus stops, bicycle parking facilities, and electro-mobile charging stations ensure that exhaust emissions caused by private transport are significantly reduced.Save this picture!© HG EschThe colour scheme of the interior and the building facade features calm and earthy bronze shades in order to support the harmonious atmosphere. A space-filling sculpture is a central exhibit in the Aedes Architectural Forum; it models the deliberate design of the building shape so that it can be fully appreciated. A documentary film of the building by architectural photographer HG Esch, interviews with project participants, and explanatory diagrams of the project provide visitors with new ideas for architecture in mega-cities.Save this picture!Elevation – ResidentialProject gallerySee allShow lessExtension to Primary School / Paul Dillon ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSerene House HCMC / Module KSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Singapore, SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

Corey Seager still ‘searching’ for his post-surgery swing

first_imgSAN DIEGO — Corey Seager has not been himself this year. That much is obvious.Since he made his big league debut in September 2015, Seager’s offensive production has been remarkably steady. Before hip and elbow surgeries last year, he had only one calendar month during which he hit less than .250 — the last month of 2017 when he was dealing with elbow and back woes (that would keep him off the Dodgers’ roster for the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs).But he finished April this year batting .236 and will take a .223 average and .656 OPS into Sunday’s game with just three hits in his past 35 plate appearances and no home runs since April 12.“I’m searching a little bit. Trying to figure it out a little bit,” Seager acknowledged. “But not far. Just missing a few little things. “There’s a few things that are off, that I’m trying to work through, just trying to figure it out.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts categorized Seager as a hitter who is “mechanics driven.” That it would take time for Seager to rediscover those mechanics after missing most of the 2018 season is not surprising.“I think that’s fair. Yeah, I do. I think that’s completely fair,” Roberts said. “You’re taking at-bats in spring training but there’s a different intensity. And with Corey, his body, the levers, the hips, the elbow — everything has changed with surgery. So now you’ve got the body composition, the timing, the mechanics all of that stuff — you look at the player and you just expect him to roll out big numbers. But it’s just not that easy.”Seager admitted early in the season that there were parts of his game-day routine that he had forgotten because he had been out for so long — “There are things in my routine where I say, “I can’t believe I forgot to do that,’” he said. But Seager is not willing to point to last season’s hip and elbow surgeries as the reason for his slow start.“I don’t want to blame it on that,” he said. How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “You obviously knew you were going to need some ABs. The amount, I don’t know. There was always going to be an adjustment when you haven’t played in a long time. It’s been a really long time since you played every day, been a long time since you faced this kind of pitching. Yeah, you knew it was going to take some time.”Roberts knew too and said he would have predicted 100 to 150 plate appearances would be required before Seager felt like himself again at the plate. After Saturday’s 1-for-5 night, he has 139 plate appearances post-surgery.“You don’t want to be,” Seager said when asked if he was worried by his current slump. “That’s not how you’re wired. You’re wired to expect to fix it. It’s frustrating, yeah, but not worried.”POP OUTPlaying first base Friday night, Cody Bellinger made a diving attempt on Eric Hosmer’s fourth-inning single through the right side of the infield. Bellinger landed hard on his right shoulder and was in obvious pain for a few moments.Related Articlescenter_img After the game, Bellinger said his right shoulder “popped out.” After manipulating his right arm, the should popped back in. Bellinger said it has happened before including once last year. But Roberts kept him out of the lineup Saturday due to residual soreness from the injury.“He was a little disappointed he wasn’t in there tonight. But I think the best thing is to give him an extra day,” Roberts said.“It happened to him last year. As I recall, speaking with our trainers, it happened a few years ago. But this wasn’t as severe as last year and I really can’t recall if he missed time last year because of it. I do know he’s on this shoulder-strengthening program which if he hadn’t been on I’d hate to have seen what would have happened. But I like to think we have it under control.”ALSOLeft-hander Tony Cingrani has been assigned to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on a rehab assignment. Cingrani has not pitched this season due to a recurring shoulder problem that flared up during spring training. The same issue sidelined him for most of the second half last season. Cingrani was scheduled to pitch in relief for the Quakes Saturday night. …Left-hander Caleb Ferguson threw on flat ground Saturday. Roberts said Ferguson will likely throw to hitters in a simulated-game setting Tuesday before the game at Dodger Stadium. Ferguson is on the Injured List with a minor oblique strain.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Kenta Maeda, 3-2, 4.41 ERA) at Padres (LHP Nick Margevicius, 2-3, 3.23 ERA), 1:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), AM 570 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies last_img read more
