High-density city centre with many tall buildings normally experiences higher air temperature than its surrounding (heat island) due to the accumulated solar heat from inter-reflection and re-radiation from ground surfaces, building envelopes and wall surfaces. Conventional method of planting trees and grass on the ground only solved part of this problem. The author tries to propagate vertical concept of greening tall buildings in order to soften the “concrete jungle look” of our urban form. Vertical greening of tall buildings is also suggested as one of the main remedial method to the accumulated solar heat and glare in cities with many tall buildings. Examples of buildings with vertical greens concept are also highlighted in the paper. Planning and designing of our future cities in the tropics should consider vertical greens concept in order to produce more conducive and comfortable urban environment for the well being of the whole city population.
