Antilla “Green” Tower in Mumbai


Inhabitat » Perkins + Will’s Antilla “Green” Tower in Mumbai
Renderings of the 27-story Antilla building depict a highrise that couldn’t be greener. It’s covered in foliage, with living walls enclosing all four sides, hanging gardens and green rooftop. Just a few days ago, the architects boasted about its environmental features – primarily that the walls of plants will increase green space and combat urban heat island effect. But look behind the green façade, and as far as we can tell, there’s nothing else sustainable about the materials or construction. Architecture firm Perkins Will doesn’t include the project on their site, but this week mentioned no other green features besides the literal green.
