Singapore has come to be known not only for its tourist attractions but also its impressive architecture and environment friendly initiatives.
Now the country is readying to bring to Dubai an insight into what it takes for a city to be urban and eco-friendly at the same time.
Singapore’s theme at the world fair is ‘Nature, Nurture, Future’. The pavilion will offer visitors an insight into the urban evolution of the 722.5-square-kilometre country.
The Singapore Pavilion, which aims to replicate the country’s ‘City In A Garden’ perspective, was designed by WOHA Architects, led by founding director Wong Mun Summ. The pavilion is a green belt complete with verdant trees, shrubs and orchids.
The pavilion’s usable areas are maximized and multiplied through stacked layers to form a voluminous, 3-dimensional green space. the ground plane is a lush oasis of tropical trees, verdant shrubs and vibrant orchids, capped with a spectacular hanging garden and anchored by three cones draped in vertical greenery.
Singapore pavilion is powered solely by solar energy. It features net-zero energy technology and a solar desalination system. The construct, claim the architects, has a zero-waste design.
