A Swirling Green Roof Tops Nanyang Art School in Singapore If art school was in our future we might opt to study under, or on top of, the amazing green roof at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, designed by CPG consultants. This 5 story facility sweeps a wooded corner of the campus with an organic, vegetated form that blends landscape and structure, nature and high-tech and symbolizes the creativity it houses. The glass façade provides a high performance building envelope that reduces solar gain and heat load while allowing the benefits of natural views and daylight into creative spaces. The glass walls provide a visual exchange between indoors and out allowing students and teachers to experience the building, the surrounding landscape and the interior plaza as fluid spaces. Diffused natural daylight is abundant throughout studios and classrooms, filtered through the surrounding foliage. Finishes are intentionally raw to act as a backdrop for the art, media and design projects.

Hillsideout - antique art design HILLSIDEOUT [antique art design] is a joint project by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms which came to life in 2009 out of a mutual concern and discomfort for the degradation of abandoned sites in the Italian Apennines. HILLSIDEOUT expresses the need to transform the state of uselessness but also forgotten stories into practical functionality. The ancient, mainly medieval, mountain villages but also journeys abroad are the starting point for transforming the past into "living memory" by re-introducing it into the habitations in the form of innovative and self-aware furniture. HILLSIDEOUT chooses local pieces, generally of wood, but also "emotional" objects with personal value, adding value to their past whilst maintaining consideration for their origin. A design will often start with an object such as a door, a drawer, a chair or simply photographical images. HILLSIDEOUT brings the past into the present in the form of uniquely handcrafted contemporary furniture.
