Gallery: NEW PHOTOS: Spectacular Solar Supertrees Open this Month at Si...

 
An interior view of one of the many gardens.

The 10 days of revelry celebrating the opening of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay promise to be quite the event, with headliners including Jason Mraz performing on opening night. The Supertrees will also score plenty of jaw-dropping moments with Garden by the Bay’s plan to hold light and sound shows during the new grove’s opening week. The 54-hectare South Garden will also feature a bevy of educational programs as well as floral displays.

After five years in development, the gardens will showcase indoor and outdoor landscaping with a sustainable twist. The conservatories are designed to reduce energy consumption by an average of 30 percent and will also use waste from clippings as a source of biofuel. Water conservation features include the filtration of rainwater and other runoff, which Gardens by the Bay will then recycle and use to irrigate the complex.

    I painted a picture based on years of designs I did for fun, and ended up with a similar system, good to see it in real life! Good to see that not every nation has thrown away their economy with the “War on Terror”!
