The Gardens by the Bay project was worked on by a team of engineering and architectural firms including the prestigous Atelier Ten and Wilkinson Eyre, and features the largest climate-controlled greenhouses in the world. With a focus on showcasing the environmental efficiency needed in today's increasingly at-risk world in terms of the effects of climate change, Gardens by the Bay consists of a selection of distinct ecosystems that explore the relationship between plants and people, and plants and our planet.
