Dizzying 50-metre high vertical gardens, a labyrinth of skywalks and stunning indoor waterfalls within highly sophisticated conservatories.
You walk in the door and you’re immediately greeted by a 35-metre high indoor waterfall. It’s ridiculous.
At the top of the giant, man-made trees sits photovoltaic cells that simulate the process of photosynthesis.
The trees also collect rainwater and operate as an exhaust system for the cooling network within the indoor structures.
At 1.28 hectares, the gardens’ Flower Dome was recently awarded the 2015 Guinness World Record for being the largest glass greenhouse.
‘It feels like I’m walking around in Avatar,‘ said Blain.
The park itself has also bagged a host of sustainability and tourism awards.
With its population over 5.4 million people within a relatively small landmass, Singapore hopes the gardens will maintain a sense of a nature and greenery for residents and tourists alike.
