Introduction

Skyrise Greenery is a concept that integrates green elements into the built environment. As physical living conditions become increasingly stratified, we need to look to innovative Skyrise Greenery to offer a sphere of new possibilities in our physical and social environments. It represents a vision to evolve our ever intensifying cities into urban scapes that are dynamic in more environmental and sustainable ways.

The Skyrise Greenery Awards aim to promote and reward greening efforts in urban developments. The Awards recognise architects taking the lead role in provisioning for green elements from the initial design stages, working in conjunction with stakeholders to bring a project to fruition.

1. Building and Construction Authority (BCA)
2. Landscape Industry Association of Singapore (LIAS)
3. Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC)
