Singapore’s Sky Park: Architecture as Fantasy
Tom Durning sends along some pics of Sky Park, a mixed-use complex in Marina Bay, Singapore designed by Moshe Safdie – he who did Vancouver’s Central Library.
Gotta say that it looks absurd to me, and even somewhat clunky. (But I’d love to go for a swim up there. )
In fact, there’s a much more appealing passerelle leading to it than the pretentiousness inside:
Charlie Rose recently did an interview with Safdie here – in which he characterized Sky Park as Singapore’s Eiffel Tower.
UPDATE: For some reason (probably a search engine algorithm), this post continues to be one of the most popular on Price Tags. So here’s a video to add to the interest – an overview of how the 150-metre long pool was constructed in a mere span of 7 months.
