Marina Bay Sands is a unique, 57-floored, 10 million square feet urban district; equivalent to 929 thousand square meters. The building is the anchor of Singapore’s waterfront situated around its Central Business District (CBD). It forms an integrated resort that contains 2560 quarters. They are all a mixture of hotel and dining rooms, theatres, shopping centers, Skypark, museum, convention center, and a casino. The multifaceted design based on the modern life, climatic conditions, and culture of Singapore.
The purpose of designing the elevated Marina Bay Sands was to structure an urban setting that would address Singapore’s mega-scale issues. It forms a metropolitan makeup that brings together parts of a compound program into a vibrant and all-rounded public facility. The inspiration behind the structure’s tall design was from the grand ancient cities that catered for essential public welfare aspects.
Marina Bay Sand is well-organized around two significant axes which navigate the CBD, creating a sense of tower-like orientation. It co-joins both the outdoor and indoor spaces and provides a stage for a wide variety of activities. This highly-raised, exceptional, 21st-century grand mall links to other subways and transportation channels. It contains sequences of well-shaped green gardens that create sufficient spaces all through the site. The tropical garden scenery extends from Marina City’s Park to the Bayfront.
The landscape connections bring together various urban districts’ involvements, with every level of district presenting as open and accessible to the public. The innovation incorporated in the Marina Bay Sand’s elevated design appears from both the conceptual and technical viewpoints. This modern innovation appears in the 2.5-acre Skypark that connects to the upper side of the hotel’s towers.
The Skypark is a technical phenomenon, elevated higher than the Eiffel tower. It is extensively huge and tall. The 213 ft beam of the Skypark situated after the third hotel tower structures one of the globe’s most enormous communal beams. The location of the park, together with the hotel’s facilities is at 656 ft above sea level; equivalent to 200meters. The three towers that anchor the district connects at the apex by the Skypark.
Besides, the Skypark hosts restaurants, public observatories, gardens, jogging paths, 4and a 95-feet long swimming pool. It also offers incredible panoramic outlooks amidst the densely-resourced city of Singapore. From the elevated position, one can have spectacular viewpoints of the diverse sceneries all over the city. There is also a 33 ft box girder at the end-support of the hotel tower. It is designed craftily to realize the creation of the unique cantilever.
During Marina Bay Sand’s initiation, the elevation of the Skypark was one of the most significant challenges that the project underwent. The construction method required a technological approach to facilitate the building; one of the highest public structures ever.
The hotel which contains the Skypark has a distinct form. Each of the towers includes two curve raisings that lean on one another as they rise high up. The features create the landmark for Marina Bay Sands.
