We all know about Singapore's marina Bay Tower, but very few might know about this amazing lotus or flower-like structure right near it as the ArtScience Museum. This was built along with the Marina Bay Towers on the same site. The Architect of this plan was world-renowned Arch. Moshe Safdie. This was really a good idea of making a museum such that the roof can be used for an amphitheater.

The complex sits on reclaimed land which is essentially a sea bed which is really bad for such huge construction work. The core was then done by creating circular walls for excavation work. These walls were called diaphragm walls. The workers work in this circular area and then the work is completed and moved on. The shape of this was difficult to form for the engineers on-site and the design was reworked over and over again and used much 3D geometry software which helped them to distribute the stress and make it more safe and easy to build. This building was to be used for exhibitions and seminars and the rooftop was to be built for amphitheater was hard work. The building formwork was prefabricated and the elements were brought on-site and connected with bolts. As the concrete was poured in the outcome was a single l, uniform wall of the petal of the building.

The building gives the visitors a view of the Marina Bay and Singapore city and has a new view on each side of the building making it very attractive. The things are on the place as the investment was done by the Las Vegas Company The Marina Bay Corporation there was no delay in work and the timely work made it complete on time.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure.



Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT i.e. Cross Laminate Timber which …
