Project Detail


Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort


Safdie Architects


Project Description

The Marina Bay Sands Restort, in Singapore, is easily noticed by its three 55-story towers overlooking Marina Bay. The sloping geometry of the towers required the structural engineers at Arup, particularly the bridge and tall-building specialists, to devise a strut-and-tension-cable system to support the walls during construction.A low-rise, undulating podium in front of the towers houses a vast array of entertainment venues. Because of space constraints, Safdie built the three-acre SkyPark, 656 feet in the air, by bridging the tops of all three towers at the 55th story. 9,000 silver-painted, metal-composite panels enclose these mega trusses.
