Milroy Perera Associates have recently unveiled their plans for Clearpoint Tower in Sri Lanka. When completed, the luscious 46-story building will be the world’s tallest residential vertical garden. But it’s not just about looks; designed with the help of Mäga Engineering, the building focuses on sustainable initiatives, using the exterior vegetation to minimize solar heat gain and provide a sound buffer. As a result, the need for air conditioning is reduced, with extra energy provided by rooftop solar panels. Lastly, the need for water is satisfied via an efficient automated drip irrigation system.
