On the other hand, Thunder storms are also a very regular phenomenon in Singapore. (Figure 2) 4. Page 4 1.0 B Project Description Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore with its School of Art, Design & Media building represents one of the finest, if not best, sustainable building ever built. With its swirling facade and smart usage of the natural surrounding context, this building provides an interesting twist into sustainable designs with its creativity and boldness. Designed by the CPG consultants, this five storey campus shows that not all sustainable building has to be dull and shapeless. In fact, NTU-ADM was given the Green Mark Platinum award, one of the high a building can obtain, by the Building and Construction Association (BCA). Green Mark Award is the benchmark for design, construction and operation of high performance green building. The award is separated into a few categories which are Certified, Gold, Goldplus and Platinum (BCA Green Mark Award Rating) of course with the later being the best. The award is given based on how much points are collected as each category is satisfied based on a certain criteria.
