‘Gardens by the bay’ by Wilkinson Eyre, Singapore, consisting of three distinctive waterfront gardens. Situated along the Marina reservoir within the heart of singapore’s new Marina Bay complex, the development spans a total of 101 hectares.
The design – which was originally won in an International competition – is set to become an integral part of the governments strategy to integrate natural and built environments.
Due to open in June of this year, the two cooled conservatories – the ‘flower dome’ and ‘cloud forest’ – are positioned at the bays edge where their steel and glass bodies optimize views and provide a further connection between land and water. The energy efficient buildings utilize the latest sustainable building technologies and contain a system for capturing and filtering run off water before dispersing it back into the reservoir.
