With its supertrees, biodomes và skywalks, Gardens by the Bay is part of an overall strategy to develop & create a new downtown district in Singapore’s Marimãng cầu Bay.

This past week, Bay South-the largest of the three-was finally opened to lớn 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 Eyrevà landscape architectsGrant Associates, the25 to lớn 50 meters high structures just dont look omnisciently fantastic, but they also serve a purpose: they generate solar power, act as air vent ducts for the conservatories nearby & collect rainwater. Connected by “skywalks” the supertrees were designed lớn impress-và they certainly do.

While access to lớn the outdoor gardens at Bay South is không lấy phí, there is an admission to lớn enter the shell-shaped conservatories, of which there are two: Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. Equivalent khổng lồ 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 ascover, experiencing the lush, tropical vegetation in nine different zones. Cloud Forest also features a 30-meter-high manmade waterfall that helps maintain the climate.
