Supertree | Garden by The Bay | Singapore
Welcome to the world of landscape the greenery planet
that located at marina bay, known as GARDEN BY THE BAY
the planet which famous with the towering supertree, the hanging bridge,
the branching of the silver leave and flower dome
makes Singapore another significant spot for both local and oversea tourist to hangs out.
As Singapore's premier urban outdoor recreation space,
the scenery of the park are all within here.
The Bay garden was completed and opened to public on 29 June 2012.
one of the garden we visited was the Bay South Garden which is the largest garden among the others.
it showcase large number of tropical vegetation and garden artistry.
The overall concept of the master plan was drawn from the inspiration of the
national flower of the Singapore, the Orchid.
The orchid takes root at the waterfront (conservatories)the leaves(landforms)
shoots (paths, roads,linkways _ circulation)
secondary roots (communication lines)
form the network with the bloom (supertree)
In my opinion, I think the design itself is quite literally
derived from the form and shape of the orchid itself, however,
to serve as purpose of landmarks, i can not deny that it successfully attracted crowd to have a visit there.
The spreading of the SUPERTREESa tree-like scupltures a.k.a structures that dominate the gardens with its heights and the form.
its roughly 25-50 meter tall with the vertical landscape climbing on it,
performing a multitude of function that
acts as a space for planting, provide shading, and working as environmental engines for the whole garden.
During the night time,the garden will lights up which gain the energy from the photovaoltaic cells
the solar energy that harvested on daytime.and here, showing the growth of the lights that
going to happen on night time.
(p/s: i m quite sad because i am not able to stay until the night to enjoy the lighting show)
Apart of serving itself as a home or host for a large number of species of unique fern, vines, orchids and other plants, the supertree also act as an eco-friendly mechanism.
The supertree having its own rainwater harvesting system where the rainwater will be used in irrigation and fountain displays later on. it is exactly performing how a tree absorb rainwater for growth. the supertree also serve as air intake and exhaust function as part of the conservatories cooling system.
From the top of the elevated walkway
the OCBC Skyway, which hanging from one to another large supertrees, here is the breathtaking view for visitors once climbing up.
(p/s: there is lift provided and the entrance free is SGD 5 which can be purchase at the entrance)
here the most dominating supertree which located at the middle of the park of that particular area,
it acts as a food and beverage outlet which is atop the 50metre high.
stand in awe of the amazing supertrees.
the tree uniquely designed as the vertical garden and come alive with an exhilaration display of
lighting and sound at night.
oversee the whole view of the garden,
the eye of the singapore
