Ready? The project we are about to see is truly amazing!
We are in Singapore, more precisely in Marina Bay and were going to talk about one of the largest greenhouses in the world.
The project is called “Gardens by the Bay” and includes a total of 101 hectares of space which are divided into three distinct areas that overlook the bay.
We have East Bay, Central Bay and South Bay.
The South Bay, with its 54 hectares extension, is the project that I want to specifically focus on.
Now, I’ll explain why: the project was planned in 2012 by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and Grant Associates studio and it’s a real key project for the territory of Singapore since it represents the vision of this city as a “garden city”.
Inside this architectural contemporary and futuristic greenhouse, where the structural elements of metal and glass with their curved lines and transparencies, encourage nature to explode.
The visitors who are accustomed to the tropical climate of Singapore, with its evergreen, lush vegetation, are given the opportunity to experience the seasonality of nature and the changes that go with it.
It has a vast amount of plants, trees, flowers on display and all set in natural ambients. From the lavender fields to the olive groves, from the baobab to the misty plains, even a 35 meter waterfall in the middle of the greenery.
It's a truly grandiose project that stems from man's ingenuity and dreams which meets with the wonder that only nature can give. Don’t you think so?
