sustainability at challenge park

We were delighted with the recent ong siew lecture series held in singapore which took a turn when zlg presented this building. The deeply intriguing conversation went off on an interesting tangent when we talked about sustainability in a way that was different. We always wanted very much to embrace sustainability which meant we could keep the look and feel of a building for a very much longer time, without having to do strange things to it, like destructive building extensions or modifications. this is one of the very latest images of the challenge park skate centre, showing how the most simple elements are used, without too much concern for decoration. the strong geometry of the roof and the slender columns allow for such modifications that would not take the design concept away from it.
