ArtScience Museum Singapore - The Architecture

Designed by the eminent architect Moshe Safdie, the museum's form draws inspiration from the lotus flower, a symbol of purity and enlightenment in many cultures. Its striking structure comprises ten sweeping petals that elegantly open to the sky, creating a sense of movement frozen in time.

The museum's exterior is translucent, allowing natural light to filter through, evoking a harmonious play between the exterior and interior spaces. This architectural marvel is not only visually captivating but also serves a functional purpose as the petals act as rain collectors, channeling water into the museum's central atrium.

The architecture beautifully complements the museum's mission to bridge the gap between art and science. Each petal houses distinct galleries, blending innovative technology with artistic installations. The ArtScience Museum's design is a testament to the power of architecture, much like the exhibits it hosts within its walls.
