I love Singapore and this city is bursting with gorgeous and surprising architecture wherever you turn. Sparkling glass skyscrapers, creative , grand colonial British buildings, beautifully restored row shops, colourful temples of different denominations, Singapore has them all.
Singapore has limited land space and the challenge is to make the most of available resources. This best explains the country’s fascination with high-rise buildings and building innovations, and is also why architecture ingenuity is an attribute that’s greatly valued here. As a result, renowned architects in Singapore and around the world have constantly pushed the boundaries of design to amaze the world with their works, and you can be sure that Singapore’s landscape is just going to get more interesting.
Here are some of the finest examples of Architecture in Singapore.

Sixteen years ago, Mike Meiré was a poster boy for minimalism. “I only listened to techno and wore Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons,” says the German artist and art director, whose clients include companies like Dornbracht, Mini and Artek as well as high-profile independent magazines like 032c, Garage and Kid’s Wear. His apartment, on the fourth floor of a turn-of-the-century building in Cologne’s Belgian Quarter, had white lacquered floors, painted brown walls, silver curtains and sharp-edged walnut sofas with suede cushions. If there was a kitchen, he never used it. “It was very much like a hotel,” he says. And that was exactly how he wanted it.
