Architectural escapades #2: Boardwalk to Sentosa

A bridge is quite a noble endeavor of all architectural works, it is extremely functional in context and is almost mystifying. From the  Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco to the Bandra-Worli sea link in Mumbai they cover a spectrum of types and uses. Closer home more humble in construct is the Sentosa Boardwalk that connects a very naturalistic free flowing mall of Vivo City to the fun island of Sentosa in Singapore. Though humble the boardwalk is so much more than a bridge and offers absolutely stunning views of the Singapore shores. At the same time spanning across different levels, with well-thought of landscaping the bridge is a very engrossing and interactive.With music, maps and information about Singapore’s flora, fauna and the glorious waters.

Personally I loved the walk and gave the elaborate travelators a miss!

And right across the cruise ship ready to take off was such a pretty sight with the backdrop of the setting sun behind the lush-green Fort Siloso.

Sometimes architecture is made by just a punctuation between the built and the un-built.
