ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM: MOSHE SAFDIE

Seemingly floating on the edge of Marina Bay, in the shadow of the giant triple towers of the Marina Bay Sands resort, is the curiously-shaped building (above) cleverly made up of overlapping spheroids, resembling a giant blossoming lotus flower.

Each petal of the “flower”, designed by the Israeli maestro, is a gallery space while the glass tips let in natural light. Inside, the white curvilinear space wraps around a central air-well that floods the gallery spaces with light. The natural theme of the design is echoed in a lily pond at the base that collects and recycles rainwater.
