Gardens by the Bay is Singapores newest addition to the citys urban development plan for the future. Landscape architecture firm Grant Associates/Gustafson Porter won the international design competition organized by the countrys National Parks Board. The goal: create gardens across 101 hectares of real estate by the water.
Grant Associates will design Bay South, the largest garden at 54 hectares complete with a Conservatory Complex; providing a cool moist biome and cool dry biome. These vertical gardens will incorporate a mixture of tropical flowering, ferns and canopies that will light up with projected media at night. Bay East will be smaller at 32 hectares including cascading water garden terraces, a Boat House Piazza and an education centre.
