Orchard Ion by RSP Architects

Unable to find anything on the LED lighting aside from Lightscape Technology

"The retail canopy draws on the metaphors of skin and foliage, while the iconic tower design is based on the concept of roots and shoots growing up out of the canopy below," Buffonge says. "Even the interlocking pattern of undulating shapes in the three-dimensional, free-form curvilinear glass and metal facade was inspired by the complex patterns and textures found in nature." Buffonge says the podium building also breaks new design ground in terms of its construction – it is the first pure monocoque facade and canopy structure to be built in Singapore." - Home & Apartment Trends 2515
