Singapore Marina Barrage

8

Singapore's latest attraction for both locals and tourists to learn more on Singapore's Reservoirs.

Marina Barrage is considered Singapore’s latest downtown icon, built across the mouth of the Marina Channel. The Marina Barrage is the first reservoir in the heart of the city, 15th in Singapore. With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or 1/6 the size of Singapore, the Marina catchment is the island’s largest and most urbanised catchment.

This colossal architectural masterpiece is a must-visit. Take a stroll through the barrage’s vast compounds and come face to face with stunning engineering equipment. Visit the intriguing gallery and discover how the Marina barrage ingeniously prevents flooding to the city’s low-lying areas. Or simply stand atop the green roof to take in the sweeping Singapore city skyline.

    Lomography Singapore and Parallel Planets Present: 'Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition'

    Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
