"Gardens by the Bay, Singapore" Gardens by the Bay consists of three distinctive waterfront gardens in the heart of Marina Bay that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city. Slated for opening in the summer of 2012, the presentation shows the scope, content, and progress of this spectacular 101-hectare project with particular reference to the innovative use of vertical planting and ecological management systems. 18 'Supertrees' provide a framework for vertical gardens rising 25 to 50m above the ground. Strategies for sustaining planting within the cooled conservatories and the specific designs for the 40m high 'mountain lattice' within the cool moist conservatory are discussed along with spectacular graphics and construction photos.
