Singapore: Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is the new park in Singapore.  It’s like a Botanic Gardens but also has a very theme-parky feel (with super trees and glasshouses).  It was interesting enough, but one of the things I found interesting was actually the pedestrian links back to the Marina Bay Sands complex.

Trees on pedestrian overpasses was a really nice touch that would be great in more cities.  It was too busy with highway noise underfoot to really want to sit there, but it did also provide public seating along the way to contemplate the views.

    I like this, but read my comment in context with the one about small spaces. This seems a good example of a large one though. Maybe I need to go to Singapore now.
