A monograph on the architectural practice WOHA, known for its environmentally-friendly buildings.
This monograph on the Singapore-based architectural practice WOHA uses examples such as open-aired tropical family homes, green permeable high-rises, and a cutting-edge resort on the island of Bali to show how the firm has continued to create innovative, environmentally sensitive structures that blend into their environments, yet maintain aesthetic integrity. Essays in the book explore WOHA’s tropical architecture; discuss the Asian understanding of nature; and look at newly designed community spaces. Headed by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell, the practice is making a name internationally for their sophisticated projects, which are presented in this volume. Through numerous illustrations and in-depth essays, this book reveals the innovative, sustainable, and green designs of WOHA.
Peter Cachola Schmal is an architect and director of the DAM Deutsches Architekturmuseum (German Architecture Museum) in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
