Nature. Nurture. Future. Showcasing Singapore’s urban innovations, the net-zero energy pavilion designed by WOHA explores our journey towards liveability and resilience.
Quick facts – Singapore:
- Land area: 722.5 square kilometres.
- Population: 5.6 million.
- Official languages: English, Malay, Chinese, Tamil.
- One of 3 city-states in the world, Singapore thrives as a compact yet sustainable and liveable city. 85% of the population lives in high-rise public housing, with 8 in 10 homes located within 10 minutes’ walk from a park. One such park space is Singapore’s 1st UNESCO World Heritage Site – the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is located just 5 minutes away from the iconic Orchard Road shopping belt, named after the plantations that lined it during the 1940s.
In the Singapore Pavilion:
- An immersive 3-dimensional greenery experience. A net-zero energy rainforest powered by a self-sustaining ecosystem. The Singapore story through interactive exhibits, programmes and flavours.
- City in a Garden. A three-dimensional green space flanked by forest trees, capped with a spectacular Hanging Garden. Visitors can stroll across an undulating landscape and 9-metre tall Garden Cones, a testament to Singapore’s reputation as a City in a Garden.
- Canopy walk. An experiential journey meandering through the Pavilion, where visitors will be engaged by the sights and sounds of nature at the Ground Garden, Garden Cones and Hanging Garden.
- Verdant Garden Cones. A series of sculptural Garden Cones draped in vertical greenery, texture and colour form the centrepieces of the pavilion, each featuring exhibits that showcase Singapore’s natural heritage, innovative urban solutions, and multitude of orchid species.
- Sky Market. An open multi-purpose deck atop the Garden Cones, sheltered by the Solar Canopy and cooled with fine mist. Visitors can discover more about Singapore through exhibits and programmes while enjoying a curated showcase of Singapore’s diverse flavours.
