The constant remodelling of Singapore has had one positive impact – the rise of some fascinating modern architectural marvels.
Add to that the mix of traditional edifices which are testament to Singapore’s multicultural and diverse history, and what you have is a city that has managed to make a unique mark for itself among other locations. Here, you’ll see 10 such buildings that testify to this fact.
Bras Basah MRT Station
Designed by a local architectural firm who won a competition that was already immensely difficult to begin with. The problem was not so much just the design of the station but the location it was placed which was already crowded. The design was then to build it deep, meaning this is one of the rides you will have on the escalator as you lunge downwards. And in order to creatively solve the issue of light in an environmentally-friendly manner, the forecourt of the Singapore Art Museum, with its pool, is used to disperse light through the station.
