Reservoir in The City

2009-07-28 14

The Marina Barrage forms Singapore’s first reservoir in the city. With a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore, the Marina Reservoir stands as the island’s largest and most urbanized catchment.

With so much to see and do, the colossal architectural masterpiece at the heart of the up-and-coming Marina South district is a whole new experience.

Stroll along the Marina Bridge and watch as water surges into the sea when the crest gates are opened. Take a break at one of the viewing decks overlooking the Marina Reservoir and panoramic cityscape. Head up to the the grass-carpeted Green Roof, an eco-friendly feature that helps lower the building’s temperature so that less energy is used. It is an ideal place to revel in warm sunshine and enjoy kite flying or a picnic with a sweeping 360º view of the Singapore city skyline.

After bathing in the sun, kids can soak in the fun and have a splashing good time at the water play area. Visit the Sustainable Singapore Gallery and learn about Singapore’s efforts and achievements in creating a sustainable environment. Fun and interactive, a tour will fascinate both young and old. As you walk around, don’t forget to appreciate the art pieces of local and international artists that depict the environmental sustainability theme.

    A great gallery! I remember I passed by this place when I went to the airport! And wasn´t this also the place where all the Singapore Lomographers organized the "Project 360" not that long ago?

    5 Hidden Gems in South Korea

    Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    The name Hodachrome is one of the most popular in the Lomography community. It has become synonymous with the acronym EBS, which stands for exposing both sides of the film. These multiple-exposed photos have an unmistakable style in the vein of ecstatic carnivals and exaggerated dreams. The man behind the vivid shots, Hodaka Yamamoto, talks to us about the habits of a good experimental photographer.
