He has designed more than a dozen high-rise towers and over two hundred projects worldwide, including the 40-story eco-tower Elephant and Castle in London; the 24-story IBM building in Malaysia; the 15-story Mesiniaga Building, also in Malaysia, which received the prestigious Aga Khan Award; and the National Library in Singapore, honored by the government of Singapore with a Green Platinum Prize, the highest award for a green and sustainable building. His most recent book is Ecodesign: A Manual for Ecological Design."
