Ken Yeang – Wikipedia

jeang This man is cloning old-growth redwoods and planting them in safe places video. It is for this and his ecological urban design that he has gained a uniquely influential position within architecture.

But along those lines, “fuzzy” can suggest something else too: The Malaysian architect’s visionary approach to green building bucks the mainstream, embracing. Yeang also coined the phrase “eco-mimicry” to describe the process of designing buildings to imitate the properties of nature.

The Malaysian architect’s visionary approach to green building bucks the mainstream, embracing the tall building as an urban fact, a problem to be solved afresh with each new design. He is probably best known as the inventor of the green skyscraper; it was his innovative idea to incorporate bioclimatic features in a high-density building type. The first was climatic. At the uppermost roof is a promontory viewing pod. Description Ken Yeang is internationally recognised as the leading proponent of ecological design in architecture.

Ken Yeang and Bioclimatic Architecture

This aesthetic is an independent aesthetic that encompasses eco-design holistically and which comes from an interpretation, an understanding and the inclusion of ecological constituents and processes of pgojects locality in its built form. Putting aside the conflation of “bad” with “ugly,” I have to agree with Lloyd that there often is a causal link between a building’s look and its sustainable credentials, if for no other reason than green architecture demands a certain set of materials, economy and form.


University of Malaya, D. This endeavour takes eco-design beyond accreditation systems, likely as the next stage in green design, redefining the relationship of the built systems with the ecology of the landscape, enabling a higher level of bio-integration. And a building that acknowledges nature in form might help sharpen awareness about the role that architecture plays in our often un-green urban spaces.

His work adopts bioclimatic design climate-responsive passive low-energy as a subset to ecological design, providing for him an underlying armature for ecological design. A piece in the American Prospect wonders if architects are building green “as if design itself were an obnoxious carbon-emitter.

Other courses attended includes business management at the Malaysian Institute of Management, the Singapore Institute of Management and a short course at Harvard Business School.

Though he has authored many books about his work and his ideas, this is the first definitive book to cover his forty-year career. The swimming pool on the east functions as an evaporative-cooling device bring in the predominantly easterly breeze into the adjoining internal living spaces.


He pioneered an ecology-based architecture sinceworking on the theory and practice of sustainable design. Daily and Weekly newsletters available.

Yeang contends that an eco-architecture and an eco-city should be ‘alive’ as a living system, analogous to a constructed ecosystem and not ‘de-natured’ nor look predominantly inorganic, artificial and synthetic. Please help improve it by rewriting it in an encyclopedic style.

That buildings should be designed to optimise proojects ambient conditions within spaces and this would ultimately prouects in new building forms that are specific to their locations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The impact of Yeang’s work on architecture is based on his patterns of biointegration of biotic constituents with the inorganic structure of the built environment.

Yeang applied the bioclimatic passive-mode principles to the high-rise tower typology. The approach involves creating viable habitats within the development and then matching these with selected native fauna species whether for feeding, breeding or refuge to enhance local biodiversity.

Menara MesiniagaNational Library of Singapore. His honorary degrees include D. Prljects building’s built form has an organic geometry in his on-going explorations to derive an ecological aesthetic see below.
