Sampan (a small boat of the far East) ride along the canal at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. As one of the most photographed buildings in the world, Marina Bay Sands is known for its infinity pool and unique architectural concept, but it is also an resort that includes a 2,561-room hotel, a 120,000-square-metre (1,300,000 sq ft) convention-exhibition centre, the 74,000 m2 (800,000 sq ft) The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, two large theatres, "celebrity chef" restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, a skating rink, and the world's largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines.
‘Rain Oculus’ by Ned Kahn is a signature public installation on the Art Path at Marina Bay Sands. Designed to engage people on the promenade, the large whirlpool changes in shape and intensity throughout the day, while the oculus acts as both skylight and rain collector. Artists included in the Art Path were chosen by Safdie Architects to ensure a conceptual and aesthetic collaboration between the artist and architect. #marinabaysands#safdiearchitects#theshoppesatmarinabaysands#nedkahn#thisissingapore
