With its supertrees, biodomes and skywalks, Gardens by the Bay is part of an overall strategy khổng lồ develop & create a new downtown district in Singapore’s Marimãng cầu Bay. The government funded projectis meant as a celebration for the ever-evolving city, & though Singapore is surrounded by water, the urban terrain of its tall buildings has left a desire to bring horticulture & green into its metropolis-environment, with the ultimate goal of turning Singpore into lớn a “đô thị in a garden.”When the 250-acre Gardens by the Bay is complete, it will be comprised of three sections: Bay South, Bay East và Bay Central.

This past week, Bay South-the largest of the three-was finally opened khổng lồ the public. The centerpieces of the 103-acre garden are the 18 manmade “supertrees” which are vertical structures covered in tropical flowers & ferns. Designed by British architectsWilkinson Eyreand landscape architectsGrant Associates, the25 lớn 50 meters high structures just dont look omnisciently fantastic, but they also serve sầu a purpose: they generate solar power, act as air vent ducts for the conservatories nearby & collect rainwater. Connected by “skywalks” the supertrees were designed to impress-and they certainly do.

While access khổng lồ the outdoor gardens at Bay South is free, there is an admission to enter the shell-shaped conservatories, of which there are two: Flower Dome & Cloud Forest. Equivalent lớn 2.2 football fields, the cool-dry climate controlled Flower Dome houses plants from deserts around the world, while the cool-moist Cloud Forest showcases a manmade mountain that you can asckết thúc, experiencing the lush, tropical vegetation in nine different zones. Cloud Forest also features a 30-meter-high manmade waterfall that helps maintain the climate.
