"Designing for density and nature," says Mun Summ Wong of WOHA, "we really felt strongly that New York and The Skyscraper Museum would be the perfect place to launch this exhibition. Our hope is that people gather a sense of our philosophy and approach, as well as the inherent beauty of structures and spaces that are integrated with nature."

Seen here are the vertical gardens of the SkyVille @ Dawson, a 960 unit public housing complex in Singapore. The building is divided into 12 "Sky Villages" which each have their own naturally-ventilated communal green space. SkyVille is filled with shared amenities such as a 1,300 foot running track on the roof.
