Gardens by the Bay, Singapore
This project was won in an international design competition as part of a team led by landscape architects Grant Associates. The masterplan for Marina South forms part of Singapore’s new Gardens by the Bay development and will draw from the distinctive flora of the region to create a new destination in the city. It has been designed as a series of distinct ecosystems which will enable the gardens to function with maximum environmental efficiency, and to showcase those world habitats most at risk from climate change. The garden at Marina South is home to some of the site’s most spectacular structures, including two cooled conservatories which are among the largest climate-controlled glasshouses in the world. The cool-dry conservatory explores issues related to plants and people, whilst the cool-moist conservatory focuses on plants and the planet.
