Telok Blangah Hill Park

 

Located in Singapore, Telok Blangah Hill Park’s newest addition includes “a fly-over-like infrastructure” that reaches 120 feet above the forest floor. The walkways are a respectful way to view nature as they provide a place for viewers to unobtrusively admire the landscape.

More images and more about the walkways after the break.

These truly elevated walkways, which are formed like suspension bridges, provide the rare experience of being at treetop level.   By elevating the walkways, the park was able to build around the natural surrounding to preserve the forest while also introducing a new relationship between nature and architecture.

The paths form a web-like network running through the dense forest.  As people meander along the walkways, some study the creatures occupying the rain forest canopy, while others marvel at the uninterrupted panoramic views of the metropolis.

The open structures permit sunlight to shine on the walkers while natural ventilation can cool the paths.   In the night time, some paths are illuminated by a color-changing LED light show.
