During the summer 2012, Singapore opened a colossal complex of gardens called Gardens by the Bay, which consists of a leisure and a kind of city lung for the citizens and visitors. This bay has a stunning vaulted of 18 artificial trees about 50 feet high in an area of 100 hectares, with aerial views of waterfalls, tropical plants and gardens. These super-trees act as vertical gardens that generate solar energy and ventilation to the surrounding greenhouses and to collect rainwater. Gardens by the Bay has three main areas: Bay Central Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay South Garden, and is an initiative of the National Parks Board of Singapore, with a governmental strategy to transform Singapore from a “City Garden” to a “City in a Garden”.
