Eco-friendly skyscraper in Singapore

Typically, when urban sprawl meets untouched wilderness, the natural world surrenders to the unforgiving march of man-made edifices such as towers, nightclubs, and mega malls. This, unfortunately, comes at the cost of losing the scenic charm of the natural world. But, despite the loss, people relish the convenience offered by these synthetic creations and seldom get the chance to reverse the damage.

However, the EDITT Tower stands as a testament to the contrary. Conceived by the brilliant minds of architects T. R. Hamzah & Yeang and anchored in Singapore, this tower is the epitome of green architecture. This 26-storey marvel harmonizes the seemingly contradictory concepts of modernity and eco-friendliness. EDITT, standing for Ecological Design in the Tropics, boasts around 855 square meters of solar panels that provide an impressive 39.7% of the building’s energy needs. But, it doesn’t stop there. A biogas plant transforms sewage into alternate energy sources and fertilizer. The entire building is enveloped by a protective shield of local vegetation, which is irrigated by a grey-water recycling system.

As this exemplary structure illustrates, there’s still a glimmer of hope for mankind’s coexistence with nature. All we need is a touch of eco-friendliness and a pinch of selflessness. The struggle for environmental conservation is, at its core, an exercise in self-interest as we strive to safeguard the natural world to ensure our continued existence on this planet. Nonetheless, this endeavor marks a significant stride towards betterment.
