Gardens by the Bay
Category: Tourist Attraction
The distinctive waterfront gardens in the heart of Marina Bay define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city. The Conservatory Complex is an all-weather ‘edutainment’ space, an architectural icon, a horticultural attraction, and a showcase of sustainable energy technology. The large Flower Dome is one of two cooled conservatories that replicates the cool-dry Mediterranean climate and semi-arid subtropical climates, with an uncommon range of flowers and plants.
The project represented severe waterproofing challenges as it is built entirely on reclaimed land and right next to the ocean. 18,300 m3 of concrete were cast with PENETRON ADMIX in the base slab and walls; PENEBAR SW 55 was used in the construction joints and PENESEAL PRO on the mountain walls.
