Christoph Ingenhoven has long pursued green building at a grand scale with projects such as the RWE high-rise in Essen (1997)—one of the first office towers with a double-skin facade. Here, he will explore several of his more recent works, all of which deploy high-performance principles at the urban scale. These include Marina One in Singapore, a 4.3 million-square-foot office and residential project with a jungle-like profusion of tropical vegetation growing within a terraced central court; his reinvigoration of the center of Dusseldorf (his hometown) with the restoration of a much-loved 1970s theater, adjacent to his design for a new, green-covered retail/office complex; and finally, the decades-long project to expand Stuttgart’s main rail station with a skylit, subterranean train hall in elegantly-sculpted concrete.
