From the Publisher. Exploring the sustainable design principles and engineering behind two of the world’s largest conditioned public conservatories, this book showcases biomes that will define Singapore as the world’s premier tropical garden city. Through a combination of photographs, graphics, and narratives, the book explores the challenges of building two huge enclosures to recreate, in Singapore’s naturally sunny, hot, and humid environment, the ideal growing conditions for plants from cool-dry Mediterranean regions and the cool-moist conditions of tropical mountain regions.
