Singapore’s Architecture Part 2

Hi tourists!

Hope I’ve not kept you waiting too long for Part 2 of Singapore’s Architecture, continued from Part I of Singapore’s Architecture.

3) Various types of commercial buildings

Quaint Shophouses

Towering Skycrapers

Here is the Central Business District of Singapore in its night display. This is also the location of the financial hub of Singapore, where many people make their money every day. $-$

4) And our mind-boggling works of art:

The Esplanade

Originally designed to look like two microphones by DP Architects of Singapore, this intent was soon forgotten by us Singaporeans as we all feel that it looks more like our favourite fruits, the DURIANS! In asking for directions towards it, just refer to it as the Durians, and you’re more likely to get there then if you just called it the Esplanade.

ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands

A modern museum housing world-class exhibits, this resembles a lotus or an open palm.  With it, Singapore seizes the day! Designed by Safdie Architects.

Marina Bay Sands

Also by Safdie Architects, this resembles a ship on buildings. A modern Noah’s ark? Some Singaporeans have also said, ominously, that it resembles three coffins. Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so the interpretation is really up to you. This is where one of the two casinos in Singapore is located, so bring it on, high roller!
