The amazing Supertrees will steal the show this week in Singapore’s Gardens By The Bay. These amazing towers that incorporate the latest in solar and water efficiency technologies will debut on June 29. Tropical plants native to southeast Asia creep up these towers and add splashes of color and texture. The canopies above will feature solar photovoltaics that will contribute electricity for the entire complex. Providing shade during the day and multimedia at night, the Supertrees are one of the greatest innovations to hit this dynamic city-state since a bartender at the Raffles hotel invented the Singapore Sling. Enjoy the pictures, and if you happen to have travel plans in the region this week, stop by! Check out the updated gallery on Inhabitat, which has been very popular all month.
