Singapore’s Spectacular Supertrees Will Open June 29!
Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay will open its soaring display of Supertrees on June 29. These amazing towers, which reach up to 164 feet (50 meters) in height, bring together the best of solar technology and vertical gardening. The Bay South Garden, which will showcase 18 of these Supertrees, will also function as air vending ducts for nearby conservatories as well as collect water during Singapore’s frequent rain storms. The 10 days of revelry promise to be quite the event, with headliners including Jason Mraz performing on opening night. Singapore always pulls an amazing punch far outsized of its presence on the global map. The city-state is slowly becoming a hub of sustainability and green building, too.
