Marina Bay Sands_8

Extreme Architecture #2

With a design that looks like a ship that has stranded on the top of three skyscrapers, the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort, in Singapore, is a unique achievement of modern architecture. Imagine yourself swimming in a 150-meter long pool, located 200 meters above the ground level, overlooking the sea and the city of Singapore. Enchanting, isn’t it?

Marina Bay Sands, designed by Moshe Safdie for the Las Vegas Sands Corp., is a 93-hectare urban district that integrates the waterfront promenade, a multilevel retail arcade and exhibition center, and the iconic Museum of ArtScience on the promontory.

The three towers are already spectacular by themselves as each of the 55-story structures leans at an angle 10 times than that of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. According to its designer, Moshe Safdie, the hotel Tower 1 offers the steepest slope at 26 degrees, making it one of the most complex hotels ever built.

Of course, the Marina Bay Sands’ main attraction is the 340 meter-long SkyPark and its 150 meter-long infinity swimming pool, regarded as the world’s largest outdoor pool at 200 meters from street level.

It’s timeless integrated development truly makes Marina Bay Sands a landmark that has a distinct identity which distinguishes Singapore from other cities.
