The Orchard Central Mall occupies one of the top spots among the list of most interesting mall designs I have ever seen – though the decision for innovation in architecture may not be voluntary. It is built on a strip of land that is unusually long and also unusually narrow. The traditional “large open space in the center with retail levels rising around it” would limit the retail space available to individual shops and cause a feeling of being uncomfortably confined.

Photo Album Week 43: Singapore Sports Hub 1

Why does this post have the ‘1’ postfix? Because this is definitely not the last time I will be visiting and making images of this place. There should be more photographic possibilities in the future when inspiration strikes again. Built on the site of the original National Stadium (Which was quite a large splendid example of brutalism. Do an internet search for images of it if you are interested.), the new Sports Hub encompasses a new Stadium, sports facilities, a mall (yup this is Singapore all right 😉 ), links to an indoor stadium, links to another mall with a cinema, links to other event halls, ice skating ring, and a whole load of other stuff. Read what the official website says, “a world-class, integrated sports, entertainment, and lifestyle hub delivering world-class sporting and entertainment events.”
