The Pillars of Commerce

The Marina Bay Sands hotel, designed by the acclaimed Moshe Safdie, are split into three towers and topped with a curving deck that houses the Infinity Pool and an observation point. When it was first unveiled, I recall a local architect bemoaning the fact that one of the most prominent structure in the Singapore skyline would be a casino. Almost three to four years on, I can’t imagine the downtown area without this structure, temples of commerce gleaming with promise or threats of ruin, depending on one’s point of view.

  1. This is the best photo I’ve seen yet, and you gave an in-depth description of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. This is the best post I’ve seen, and I could come back to this blog anytime. I’ve just reblogged this post because of how fantastic this photo was.
