Singapore
A steel and glass lotus flower sits atop the impressive ArtScience Museum in Singapore. The complex has over 4,600 square metres of galleries set on a 4,000 square metre lily 'pond'. The structure has 10 fingers, the tallest of which is 60 metres high. Designed by internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie, some have named the building "the welcoming hand of Singapore".
