Spectacular atria for Singapore Esplanade

The Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay in Singapore will be a focal cultural centre for the country. Michael Wilford and Partners of London and DP Architects of Singapore drew up the initial design proposals for the project including early versions of the shell roofs, and together with London-based engineers Atelier One developed the current spectacular, complex geometry shell roofs of laminated glass incorporating DuPont™ Butacite© PVB that give a 1,800 seat theatre and an equally large concert hall two distinct identities.The design of the atrium evokes southeast Asian textile and basket weaves.

DP Architects Project Director for the Esplanade, Vikas Gore, told LGN: "The laminated glass roofs were designed to give people inside the building wonderful views in all directions including the river, waterfront and nearby civic district including Parliament House, while keeping Singapore's hot and sultry climate out."
