Friday 5th February 2010. Mumbai, India. Ken Yeang, Director, Llewelyn Davies Yeang, London / T. R. Hamzah & Yeang, Kuala Lumpur, presents at CTBUH 2010 Mumbai Conference. Ken's work explores an appropriate typology for the sustainable green skyscraper which responds to both the unique cultural, climatic and ecological aspects of place. He discusses his design approach starting from the skyscraper as vertical urban design, bioclimatic strategy (as passive mode low energy design) which he advances to other ecological design considerations. In current developing markets such as India, where the import of the western, sealed air-conditioned skyscraper model without regard for the regionalist specifics of place is predominant, there are many valuable lessons to be learned in the work of this architect, at the vanguard of the sustainable high rise for the past 30 years.
