Gardens by The Bay: Giant Man-made Supertrees in Singapore
These massive towering structures (50 metres tall) form part of the “Gardens By The Bay” project, a multimillion-dollar development in Singapore’s Marina Bay area.
The unique vertical garden provides shade during the day and a beautiful display of light and sound at night.
“Fitted with solar panels, hanging gardens and rainwater catches, the trees will be used to display plants from across the globe.
A vast green space is also to be created in the area under plans to make Singapore the ‘botanical capital of the world’. Once completed, the park will house a cluster of green conservatories and will also become home to the Singapore Garden Festival.”
