Supertrees of Singapore
To develop its Marina Bay area, Singapore is building 18 “supertrees” as tall as 50 meters (164 feet) as part of a multi – million project called Gardens by the Bay. The artificial forest will open to the public on June 29, 2012.
The trees will also generate solar power, collect rainwater and cool the buildings in the area. There will even be an aerial walkway between some of the trees to provide citizens and tourists with spectacular views of Singapore’s downtown district. When I saw for the first time these trees, my first idea was on Avatar (the movie). I don’t know why… perhaps is a beautiful and incredible place. I would say that this is the most astonishing “Botanical Garden in the World”.
Right here you can see the map of the Garden.
