Futuristic Architecture Manipulating the Hierachy of Space …
Marina Bay Sands & SkyPark Integrated Resort in Singapore
Such Great Heights!
The SkyPark floats atop the 3 – soaring Marina Bay Sands Hotel Towers and looks like a surfboard or spaceship docking on a tripod.On top you literally feel you stand amongst the clouds.
SkyPark is a roof like no other,perched 200 metres in the air with an infinity pool and an observation deck in the clouds which offers you unobstructed 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline.It’s a remarkable feat of engineering designed by visionary Moshe Safdie architects.
The giant,gravity-defying platform,is one of the largest in the world,large enough to park four A380 Jumbo Jets.It also houses lush gardens,top-notch restaurants and an exclusive,infinity-edge swimming pool with a legendary view.The 150-metre pool,the world’s largest elevated body of water outdoors,has been designed with a vanishing edge.It is as if there is nothing between the swimmer and the skyscrapers in front.
After experiencing "Heaven" on SkyPark,you can descend to "Earth" where a world of shopping,dining and entertainment attractions awaits you at the rest of the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort.
The complex resort,which opened in 2010,includes a 2,561-room hotel, a huge convention-exhibition centre,the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Mall,a museum,two large theatres, restaurants,two floating Crystal Pavilions,a skating rink, and the world’s largest Atrium Casino.
