Contemporary/Futuristic Architecture and Interior Design - Compiled Threads

Hello, It's like 5 am and it's freezing outside. (Well for the locals anyway )

So this made me wonder if anyone would like to start a discussion on ecoligical environmental architecture. One that fits our climate. One common problem or critique with many current building designs we have is that we just imported it lockstock and barrel from wherever we learned these things. Worst sometime they just take visual cues or materials and haphazardly apply them without thougth to enivronment, whether in terms of air, water or even visual pollution.

Obviously our forfathers had some bright ideas with how to cope with local environments, but as opposed to Malaysia's Ken Yeang (specially his ibm building), no one project seems to stand out. In the interest of improving our urban areas,

are there exapmle we can learn from here locally.

And, any comments on the current or even old projects as they pertain to newer trends in ecologically sound design for buildings and skyscrapers in particular!

That mango building boybaha made could be enviromental friendly

Jokes aside, architects in Metro Manila, and we've said this before, are either too conservative and sticking to post-modern, North American influences architecture and the ones who aren't don't have the platforms to show off their skills. But I'd love to see one, but developers doesn't seem to be interested in enviromental architecture are they?

In general most developers are greedy self centered bastards but they will listen to intelligent building design. And Green Architecture is supposed to save money even if it costs more upfront. I'm just wondering if as we build Manila as a skycraper city if we should be advocating this and trying to learn.

The coconut palace is a good example specially of using native materials but on a skyscraper or even low rise commercial, any outstanding features?

Also am a great fan of the mango building of Boybaha, sure shows a lot more distinction and creativity with a lot of the buildings going up!

Manosas design is truly pinoy & environment-friendly... parang bahay-kubo na mansion.
