Our Awards 2015 Skyrise Greenery Excellence Award, Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum is the Republic’s only museum dedicated to showcasing Southeast Asian biodiversity. The main building houses the Exhibition Gallery and the Zoological Reference Collection and is conceived as a ‘rock’ in the landscape. A geological allegory derived from its function as a museum of natural history and expressed by its strict geometry being cleaved to reveal a ‘green’ covered strata of planter boxes that are creatively integrated with the building and the surrounding environment.

“NUS is honoured to receive the Skyrise Greenery Excellence Award. This is a strong recognition of the University’s continuous efforts in sustainable development and construction. With a long term vision of creating a biophilic campus, we aspire to incorporate lush greenery into our building designs wherever possible.

With the intent to showcase the biodiversity in Southeast Asia, the facade of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum was designed to resemble a “moss covered rock” with a pocket where over 60 types of native plants, including mangrove specimens, are nurtured. The planter boxes in the pocket were modelled to simulate natural terrain in order to encourage local fauna, such as birds and butterflies, to inhabit the wall, creating a natural bio-diverse feature wall. This greening effort not only enhances the building’s energy efficiency by acting as a heat screen to reduce the heat absorbed by the building, but also entices visitors to interact with the living garden.”
