A Green Building Should Look Green, Which Means Hairy! Dr. Ken Yeang Keynote Interview
It’s been a year since Greenroofs.com concluded our third Greenroofs & Walls of the World Virtual Summit: Connecting the Planet + Living Architecture, and as promised, we are now releasing the 23 videos from our 30+ international speakers to the general public.
In honor of Greenroofs.com's third Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2015, Publisher Linda Velazquez interviewed Ken Yeang with "A Green Building Should Look Green, Which Means Hairy! Dr. Ken Yeang Keynote Interview."
The well known architect, ecologist and planner reinvented the high-rise typology as "vertical green urbanism" and is known for his authentic ecology-based work and bioclimatic skyscrapers. Filmed in mid February, 2015, Linda Velazquez met with Ken Yeang at his London offices and greatly enjoyed his intellect, ecological aesthetic, world philosophy, and sharp wit.
Hear about the early days of the eco-architect - his inspirations, mentors, and use of innovative architectural devices; his progressive body of work including the spectacular Solaris in Singapore and the Kowloon Waterfront masterplan in Hong Kong, among others; his teachings and constant search for higher consciousness; and Ken's hearty advice for today's architects and designers.
