Esplanade – Theatres on the BayEdit profile
Prominently located at the Marina Bay waterfront is the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, which has established itself as one of Singapore's most vivid icons. A secondary sun shading lattice is used with folded sunshades which gradually transform in shape and orientation. The resulting dynamic and ever-changing mesh of dappled sunlight and shadows has given this world class performing arts venue its distinctively Singaporean personality. Ranked among the world's top performing arts venues, its crown jewels are a suite of performance venues. Supporting this facility is a cultural mall that includes a public library specialising in the arts; retail outlets, many of which are themed around the arts; and several creative F&B outlets. Collectively, these facilities are known as the Esplanade Mall.
The initial concept for this project was designed in collaboration with Michael Wilford & Partners, UK.
