Green Architecture Trends in Asia | Ingenhoven Architects | Martin Reuter


Martin Reuter explains the architecture trends currently happening in the Asian region with regards to the market’s propensity towards ‘green’ movements.

Sustainable design is now becoming a norm as buildings are the biggest consumers of power, urging more of the energy efficient approach to be implemented. While the current construction and architecture trends are 90% focusing on energy consumption, Martin asserts that this will face a shift in the next future. A more holistic approach will be required, less technical and more clever thinking will be involved – building orientation, building location, passive minimization of heat gain, qualities offered to the inhabitants, and so forth.

Martin Reuter is the Managing Director of Ingenhoven Architects.
