gardensbythebay

Singapore will be housing a new green botanical garden next to their Marina Bay at a size of 54-hectares (about 72 soccer fields.) To be built by UK company Grant Associates, architects Wilkinson Eyre and engineers Atelier 10, the Marina South Gardens will feature huge solar trees that stand 25 – 50 feet high. They will be used as hot water heaters, solar panels, venting ducts and rainwater harvesting systems. The project should be completed by 2011.
