Another Week, Another Awesome Addition Planned for Singapore's Airport
August 1, 2014 at 12:39 PM
It’s only been like a week since talked about the awesomeness that is Singapore’s Changi Airport, and now just days later there’s already new plans to introduce some even better additions.
Up next for the airport is some kind of billion dollar shopping dome, so that you can spend that extra foreign currency—or just swipe the credit card—before you head out of town. The whole thing is known as Project Jewel, and included in the construction will be five-stories of fancy pants shops as well as an indoor garden. The icing on the cake is the circular waterfall that will cascade down right in the middle of the whole building.
For those into the architecture of things it’s Moshi Safdie behind the design of this latest endeavor. His designs have already been utilized elsewhere within Singapore like over at the Marina Bay Sands Resort.
Maybe some other airports will start getting jealous and start to build something like this of their own—New York-JFK it’s your move? Ha—probably not.
