A design resembling an aquatic perennial plant: the lotus flower, structured into two major parts. The base of the ArtScience Museum in buried deep into the earth and surrounded by water,one of the inspirations for this organic project.The floating shape is represented by a steel flower-like structure composed of 10 petals of different heights, each having a skylight allowing the natural sun light to penetrate the base and illuminate its galleries.
Due to its shape and location, the form has been compared to a lotus flower: “The welcoming hand of Singapore,” by Sheldon Adelson, chairman of Las Vegas Sands Corporation which developed Marina Bay Sands.The main entrance was marked in a transparent, glass pavilion that reflects beautifully in the Bay’s water.The lower and upper galleries contain galleries that sum the total area of 6,000 square meters.The natural element, water was brought inside too trough an oculus, therefore generating a waterfall in the center of the petal structure .is
The steel structure is held by a number of ten columns and gathers in the middle of the museum,creating a sculpture-resembling piece.
The overall effect is of a light, floating concept, covered with a double-curved Fiber Reinforced Polymer usually used in boat and yachts constructions.
