La cascata dell'aeroporto Jewel Changi di Singapore | Collater.al

A majestic seven surfaces waterfall has become the symbol of Singapore’s Jewel Changi´╗┐ Airport. The “Rain Vortex” was designed bySafdie Architects and is powered by collected rainwater, which flows in the middle of a greenhouse surmounted by an inverted glass dome.

The raised dome is composed of a glass grid thick enough to absorb any noise created by aircraft taking off and landing, and has been tested to ensure that it does not emit reflections that distract air traffic controllers.

In addition to the waterfall, five floors full of shops, a playground and a terraced garden called Shiseido Forest Valley, characterized by small waterfalls and paths, were also inaugurated.
