Sky Park Singapore - an engineering wonder

“Don't tell me the sky is the limit, there are footprints on the moon!”

Last summer the most extraordinary structure was inaugurated in Singapore. I came across these photos the other day and I now have yet another reason to travel to that part of the world. Sands "Sky Park" is "suspended" at 200-meter height ontop of three skyscrapers, as if on pillars and is considered a new wonder of the world.

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion, including cost of the prime land.

Stretching longer than the Eiffel tower laid down or four and a half A380 Jumbo Jets, with an impressive 12,400 square meters of space, the Sands SkyPark can host up to 3900 people. At 57-stories high, the gravity-defying cantilever is one of the largest of its kind in the world. From this privileged observation deck, hundreds of visitors at a time can feast their eyes on the unforgettable panorama view of Singapore or play in a casino, bars, restaurants, the largest outdoor swimming pool at that height — an infinity pool 150 meters long, and a Museum of Modern Art. The designer or architect of the project is Moshe Safdie architects. The engineers were from Arup & Parsons Brinkerhoff.

Sands Sky Park marks Asia's most spectacular business and leisure destination with over 2,500 rooms & suites and state-of-the-art convention and exhibition facilities, theaters, world-class casino, entertainment and the best shopping and dining in Singapore.

Off you go.... go have some fun....... even if only in your imagination ;)
