...Amaazing ...something to enjoy...I cudnt take my eyes off this marina bay sands skyscaper..
I wanted to blog this ...when first I saw these pictures I thought its morphed ...
But then went to the history...
Sands SkyPark in Singapore is an awe-inspiring engineering wonder. This unique structural masterpiece, designed by visionary architect Moshe Safdie, floats atop the three soaring Marina Bay Sands hotel towers 200m in the sky. At the top of the 55 storey building is a 150-meter infinity swimming pool.
looking at these pictures ..its like swimming on the edge ...but in actual this drop goes to the main pool and then circulated back..
The pools have two circulation systems. The first functions like that of a regular pool, filtering and heating the water in the main pool. The second filters the water in the catch basin and returns it to the upper pool.
this resort features 2,561-room hotel..and amazing architectural facts..It also marked the opening of the seven celebrity chef restaurants. The highly-anticipated
Broadway musical The Lion King debuted on 3 March 2011
..it s considered to be taLLest swimming pool in the world Marina Bay Sands,also known as infinity pool..N not only that Skypark also features a botanical garden with 250 species of trees and 650 plants (of course). The term ‘roof-top deck’, used for this gigantic park in the sky seems like a misnomer here huh?
How did the Skypark and the 15,000 sq ft Infinity Pool come about?
Well, according to Safdie, once the footprint of the building was laid out on site, the complex still lacked the space required for recreational facilities like swimming pools, gardens and jogging paths. Hence Safdie’s incredibly testosterone-laden idea of lifting up the entire recreation-cum-relaxation zone by creating a three-acre skypark 200 metres above ground.
this skyscraper was formed ...
