AD Round Up: Green Roof Part IV

Doesn’t matter if it’s a medical technology campus, a residence, a housing project, or a public facility. The green roof looks amazing in this projects from all over the world. Check them all after the break.

Becton Dickinson Campus Center / RMJM The Campus Center at BD (Becton Dickinson and Company), a medical technology company that serves healthcare institutions, life science researchers, clinical laboratories, industry and the general public, is a 38,500-square-foot facility that bridges and blurs the boundaries between building/landscape, indoor/outdoor, roof/earth, figure/ground, and the two local business cultures of management/production (read more…)

What if the parking area became the base upon which to place terraced housing – like a concrete hillside covered by a thin layer of housing, cascading from the 11th floor to the street edge? Rather than doing two separate buildings next to each other (read more…)

Senior Citizen Community Center / F451 Arquitectura This proposal is based on the redefinition of ready-made components and their assembly to try to optimize the environmental performance of the building as well as the possibility of recycling used elements. The building was based on dry construction, except the ground, and formally displayed in such a way that increases its capability to interact with the surroundings-both architecturally and environmentally (read more…)
