The city of Singapore has set out to reverse the usual order and make “a city within a garden” (and not a garden within a city).
This ambitious attempt, enacted in a city that is at the forefront of technology, so far has its “crown jewel” in the Gardens by the Bay, more than 101 hectares in the heart of the new city center.
These gardens reproduce many of the ecosystems found in the world, but have added a technological touch that characterizes this emerging Asian power.
Within the Gardens by the Bay stands an electric forest of solar trees. These “trees”, up to 50 meters tall, are actually vertical gardens composed of bromeliad “skin”, ferns and floral vines.
The trees provide shade during the day and at night they light up and become digital screens. Eleven of them have solar cells that generate electricity and hydraulic technology to help conserve the gardens.
