Singaporean Icons 02

The Second set of the projects, these can broadly be categorized as contemporary.
  • Starting with the Gateway designed by IM Pei, seen here once again using is favorite triangular plan forms

  • An odd looking Lane Crawwford Place designed by Kisho Kurokawa
  • Another strange project by fellow metabolist architect- OB Plaza One designed by Kenzo Tange

  • An even more bizarre and tacky UFO building designed by Norman Foster - this is the High Court of Singapore

  • Singapore's answer to Bilboa's Guggenheim museum - the Esplanade theater complex designed by Michael Wilford

  • One of the most interesting city redevelopment projects I've seen - Clarke quay redevelopment designed by the eccentric Will Alsop

  • A very interesting shopping mall - Iluma mall designed by a great Singaporean firm - WOHA architects

  • Another mall - this one was quiet disappointing except for its great roof garden - Vivocity designed by Toyo Ito

  • The last and probably the most interesting mall on my list is the Orchard Central designed by DP architects it exploits its extremely thin long site and urban condition very well!

  • The highly whimsical Henderson waves designed by RSP architects is quiet a delight!

  • Newton Suites designed by WOHA architects

  • The Lincoln Modern was the only project I could visit of the Singapore's most famous contemporary design firm SCDA

  • The Pinnacle @ Duxton designed by ARC Studio Architecture + Urbanism

  • The New National Library Building designed by Ken Yeang

And here's a couple of projects that have yet to be completed
  • The huge Marina Bay Sands (an integrated resort project) designed by Moshe Safdie

  • and last but not the least a sign board of the Interlace building designed by OMA

Great Pics Sahil! - as always. I just figured out that friends of mine from Berlin, (realities united) have design the animated facade of the WOHA mall. Check out this Video: http://vimeo.com/3473657
