RSP is thrilled to be a part of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s (CTBUH) 2023 International Conference. Held on the the fourth day of the six day conference, international delegates embarked on an offsite guided visit at several locations in Singapore, including NTU’s Gaia.

RSP’s Senior Associate and architect for Gaia, Loh Kee Soon, was invited to present on the University building’s sustainable features, being Asia’s largest mass-engineered timber building and certified Platinum (Zero Energy) building by Building Construction & Authority’s Green Mark Award. An exclusive tour of Gaia for industry practitioners was also held, where Kee Soon had the opportunity to show the building’s key sustainable features, insights on Gaia’s architecture and its wooden structure.

"It was a privilege to host and present to international industry professionals at NTU's Gaia. The building serves as a testament to RSP's commitment in creating spaces that harmonise with the environment and enhance the well-being of the people who inhabit them. I am honoured to inspire a future where architecture is a bridge between humanity and the natural world."
