Architects that shaped Singapore Skyline

Recommended Posts

Note: In later reviews, we will take a look to classify each of the buildings.

For example, OUB building is considered a Fire element building. While the Overseas Chinese Banking Corporation building, The Ritz-Carlton Millenium is an `Earth Building'. While the United Overseas Bank Plaza One is a `Wood building'.

One interesting thing about looking at a large number of buildings is to look at the trends or preferences (if any) of the designs by the architects. Usually, their designs either `caught' the eye of the owners or have to be revised perhaps according to Feng Shui in many instances!

One must say that to be fair, the ultimate design is influenced by the building owners. Some architects, perhaps do not have the ultimate say.

One obvious interesting trend is that hotels usually are of the Earth design. This is to maximize space and provide a paranomic view for their clients.

And interestingly, it is good that hotels adopt an EARTH shape structure. As basically, they are `earth bound' and in the service industry serving... humans from another country or city!
