Sin­ga­pore’s Ma­rina Bay Sands isn’t only one of the most strik­ing land­marks of re­cent times it is also one of the most com­plex. En­gi­neers had to con­struct three 57-storey sky­scrapers and add a 340m sky park as big as an air­craft car­rier on top. The ho­tel towers are de­signed at sleek an­gles that could see them buckle un­der their own weight. The cost is around $7 bil­lion. A fas­ci­nat­ing episode.
