Jewel Changi Airport is a
new, 1.4 million-square-foot mixed-use hub and lifestyle destination at
Singapore’s Changi Airport, one of the world’s busiest aviation facilities. The
project opened this spring and has drawn acclaim for its unique design,
highlighted by the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and a translucent,
ovoid-shaped gridshell roof spanning 650 feet (200 meters) across. The building
combines retail, restaurants, a hotel, and expansive indoor garden and
leisure facilities, all publicly accessible and linked to airport
terminals and Singapore’s public transit.
