Photos: Singapore’s Supertrees, Solar-Powered Vertical Gardens

Supertrees

Earlier this year, Pete Hottelet of Omni Consumer Products shared photos with us of his visit to Hacienda Nápoles, the mansion of the late Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (which is now a theme park). He has since traveled to Singapore and photographed the recently opened Supertree Grove, a forest of mechanical solar-powered tree structures which are part of Singapore’s “Gardens by the Bay” redevelopment project. These metal-framed structures are vertical gardens, 18 in total, ranging in height from 82 to 164 feet tall. Pete dined at the restaurant found at the top of the main Supertree and states that the Roman-esque statue in the bathroom “sort of looks like Tyrone Biggums from Chappelle Show.” Later, he shot this video of the OCBC Garden Rhapsody, the evening sound and light show featuring the trees.
