Transcript of Untitled Prezi
Increase surface runoff
Plants help to absorb some rainwater Common Area, Swimming Pool and other Facilities, Shopping Mall Mixed land use
Important due to land constraints in Singapore Ultra-strong Metal Poles Made of non-rust material to prevent corrosion
Distances body of building from ground
Prevents flooding in homes
Important as Singapore vulnerable to sea level rise Balconies and Windows in Residential Homes Better natural ventilation --> cools temperatures
Lowers cooling costs as temperatures increase between 2.7-4.4˚C Balconies divert wind into building Windows increase permeability of building Mosquito-eating Plants Warmer temperatures and wetter conditions create mosquito-friendly environments --> increase in spread of diseases
Plants repel or digest mosquitoes Using Plants Provides shade
Cool surroundings during evapo-transpiration
Reduce heat radiation from reaching building
Cools temperatures as much as 5˚C Wind Turbines Electricity generated --> allows building to be self sufficient in energy
Venturi effect Channelled Rain Rainwater collected from rooftop, channelled into each household
Makes use of regular rainfalls in Singapore Conclusion Global warming is an important issue, which has long lasting impacts on the world's climate and environment. We should prepare for it. Limitations Maintenance of poles against erosion
Unpredictable weather for wind energy
Spread of diseases may not be eradicated
Difficulty of connecting water and electricity pipes with building near or above sea THANK for your kind attention! c: Extensions Public Response to such green houses
