The breadth and depth of the skyrise greenery movement has grown over time across cities. Elevated building platforms, gaps, corners, roofs and even underground spaces have become new planes for land-scarce cities like Singapore. With this, a diversity of landscape typologies have emerged with architecture and engineering solutions, to meet a range of community objectives, in an evolving symbiotic relationship between cities and nature.
With the fourth edition of the International Skyrise Greenery Conference (ISGC), the conversation of skyrise greenery deepens. It will focus on the topics of resilience, new levels of greening and integrating social needs into urban infrastructure. The conference also presents an open platform to draw lessons from the challenges nature presents – shaping intents, outcomes and even the bottom line of greening projects. Scheduled for 9 and 10 November at the Singapore EXPO Convention & Exhibition Centre, ISGC 2017 is the key skyrise greenery conference that you do not want to miss!
Conference registration will start on 17 March 2017 and early bird ends on 30 June 2017. Limited seats available.
All rates will be subjected to prevailing government and service taxes.

"GreenUrbanScape Asia Congress was an enriching experience. I attended the session on bringing biodiversity back to the cities, and found it very interesting to see the amount of green space that’s been brought back to Singapore in the last 50 years through collective initiatives. It’s amazing to see the absolute balance between urban and green space in Singapore. Another session was on Arboriculture where topics such as litigation were covered which every arboriculture consultant should know about to maintain a true professional standing."
