Environmental design features: The design for the Star Performing Arts Centre has opened up all elevations to encourage air movement through the volume. The design explores how the heated surfaces on the southern elevation and roof can induce wind flow from the shaded, northern face through covered outdoor spaces. This air movement can be mechanically assisted if necessary. Glazing on the southern is minimised and protected by sunshading. The majority of the main lobby glass is facing East but also protected with an external bridge acting as a large sun shade. The civic and public components of the Star Performing Arts Centre were paramount and outwardly expressed. The south elevation is completely opened up presenting the inner workings of the facility as a 'visible section'. The mass of the theatre floating above is faceted, cut with glass and utilises titanium cladding. All of this helps dissolve and break down the mass, playing with a composition of positive and negative readings. website: opening hours: daily 10am - 10pm getting there: Buona Vista MRT station - follow signs to the Star Vista (3 minute walk) Area: 62,000 m2 program: civic, cultural, community, commercial and mixed-use, residential, retail, education, hospitality and leisure, sports, technology and labs, transportation and healthcare awards: finalist of the MIPIM Awards 2013 - Best Shopping Centre category Future Projects Leisure Led Development Category, the World Architecture Festival Award 2012 shortlisted in the Chicago Athenaeum, International Architecture Awards 2012 commended and received the MIPIM Architectural Review Furture Project Awards 2010 Cityscape Asia Award 2010 Asia Pacific Commercial Property Awards 2009
