The Esplanade Sails

DPP_2357

The Esplanade Theatre’s debut in 2002 was met with much snickering and eye-rolling. Its modern facade resembled a durian (prickly tropical fruit) crossed with a common housefly. Not very flattering for a venue meant to be Singapore’s performing arts center. These days, it has sort of “melded” into the Singapore skyline (more on that tomorrow!) and has become an architectural icon in its own right. I love zooming into the sails of the structure, and think they make wonderfully abstract pictures. Largely due to how the fins seem to give the appearance of movement.
