Gardens By The Bay

A work-in-progress Gardens by the Bay. This sprawling, 250 hectares waterfront garden is meant to be Singapore’s version of Central Park, and acts as the primary “lungs” of the central district. The two prominent structures here are the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome, two energy-efficient cooled conservatories. The Flower Dome has a cool and dry interior and houses Mediterranean and semi-arid tropical plants. The Cloud Forest, on the other hand, replicates the cool conditions found in mountainous regions. The red conical structures are vertical gardens known as Supertrees. These Supertrees not only hold assorted bromeliads and ferns, but also solar cells.

In the foreground, you can see the Helix bridge, a curved, pedestrian-only bridge.
