Conservatories- cloud forest and flower dome

Designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects, the domes are intended to be an energy efficient showcase of sustainable building technologies .

The conservatories provide an all weather ‘edutainment’ space within the gardens.

The supertree skeleton

Supertrees are tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens' landscape with heights that range between 25 metres (82 ft) and 50 metres (160 ft).

They are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading and working as environmental engines for the gardens.

They are home to enclaves of unique and exotic ferns, vines, orchids and a vast collection of bromeliads such as Tillandsia amongst other plants.

Fitted with environmental technologies that mimic the ecological function of trees photovoltaic cells that harness solar energy which can be used for some of the functions of the Supertrees, such as lighting, just like how trees photosynthesize.

An elevated walkway is build atop two of the larger trees(150 ft. 60m) to give a breathtaking view of the gardens to the visitors and a restaurant. At night, the supertree comes alive with a light and music show.

Singaporean culture is a very well showcased & such thought can be adopted for other vast/anti-national projects.

The super tree and conservatories are design marvels and an inspiration for design to think out of the box.

The collaboration of the designers and the government is worth praising to establish a work culture.

All the spaces and services are designed considering the vast no. of visitors.
