Singapore Architecture

September 15, 2015

Two buildings finished fairly recently in Singapore have caught our eye. The first – the “Sandcrawler” was finished last year and is the new Singapore offices of Lucas film. The building got its name from the shape, which closely resembles Sandcrawlers from the Star Wars films. The name of the building won out in a unanimous vote held at LucasArts.

Designed by Aedas Architecture, the building forms a V around a lush garden, maximizing the natural light for the offices. A state-of-the-art 100-seat private theatre highlights the amenities of the office building.

Here is the second building we are excited about! The Marina Bay Sands was designed by architect Moshe Safdie. The Sands brings a taste of Las Vegas to Singapore. The hotel and casino consists of three towers topped with a 1,120’ SkyPark. It is the world’s largest public cantilevered platform.

The SkyPark includes a cantilevered observation deck that can hold 900 people as well as three connected infinity pools overlooking downtown.
