See Singapore’s Amazing Architectural Mix
Once upon a time, people in Singapore used to live in villages, which were called “kampongs” in the local Malay language. Today, there still exists one at Kampong Lorong Buangkok. There are also colourful rows of shophouses that combine elements of Malay, Chinese and European styles. Find them in Little India, Kampong Glam, Chinatown and Joo Chiat.
The Old Supreme Court, The Fullerton Building and The National Museum of Singapore are three sprawling, ambitious buildings built during Singapore’s colonial age. These impressive structures have since been repurposed in step with Singapore’s constant evolution.
See the two shining lit up glass domes at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and then marvel at Marina Bay’s three-tower Skypark-topped epic. My favourite is the Gardens by the Bay, whose World Architecture Award-winning rounded conservatories also contain the world’s largest unsupported glass roof.
