Singapore swing

Dish about Design

By the end of this year, I’ll have lived in Singapore for eight years. And its magical skyline is still dazzling me.

I remember writing in 2010, when Marina Bay Sands was nearing completion, how there are too many landmark buildings here, and what was happening to the urban fabric, if that were the case. Of course beyond all these sparkly icons, there is an urban fabric — even the locals get lost amidst identical HDB blocks with numbered street names that don’t follow a grid — but I have grown to love the Jetsonian CBD skyline.

I’ve only begun reading Simon Doonan — he’s hilarious. Here’s something he wrote that reminded me about Singapore’s magical skyline: http://www.slate.com/articles/life/doonan/2013/11/the_shard_the_razor_and_other_goofy_looking_new_skyscrapers.html
