Singapore is Already in Future

With towering skyscrapers and futuristic buildings, Singapore features some of the world’s best architecture — making it an ideal breeding ground for talents in the industry. Already one of the best architectural cities in the world, Singapore’s architecture scene is getting extremely exciting with innovative works over the years. 

Let’s take a look at these buildings !

Arguably the most well-known feature of Singapore’s skyline today, the Marina Bay Sands hotel has set all eyes on Singapore with its integrated resort and prime location on the waterfront.

This dramatic stack of building blocks is considered one of the largest and most ambitious residential projects in Singapore. Known as The Interlace — by OMA/Ole Scheeren — the development was completed in 2013 and contains 31 blocks positioned as a network of social and living spaces.

They say the view from the top is always better and we think the same is true for The Singapore Sports Hub.

Most buildings are rectangular but NTU’s The Hive strays from the norm. It features interconnected non-hierarchical round shapes that stimulate collaborative learning.

Futurists say that cityscapes will blend nature and urban architecture but it’s already a reality in Singapore.

Waterfalls are common in mountains and we never knew we needed an indoor version, until we saw the tallest indoor waterfall at Jewel Changi Airport.

In contrast to the dense urban environment of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings in Singapore, Gardens by the Bay is part of the government’s overall strategy to transform Singapore into a “City in a garden,” — and took just 4 years and $1 billion to create.

We did a double take due to this bewildering night transformation of the Flower Dome showcasing its reflective glass walls, neon lights and symmetrical columns.

Parkroyal on Pickering is a communal space featuring exquisite terraced gardens complete with bird cage sculptures in an assortment of colours.

The Tree House condominium in Bukit Panjang proves that the grass can also look greener on the outside of a towering residential building.

If the island looks like a futuristic cityscape in 2019 — we can’t wait to see how Singapore’s appearance will continue to evolve in next 30 years…
