~took a very early morning stroll...

...and stumbled upon unique design!
Singapore is certainly one of Asia's most vibrant cities and
home to some of the best modern architecture.
~Take a look at what I saw this morning:
.
there're several similar design scattered among the nearby property.
They have become part of the landscape...& wonderful public art sculptures!
.
...upon closer inspection (cos' I'm a nosy tourist like that!),
I think they actually housed some kind of 'machinery'...errr electric generator perhaps?
All I know is that it has this soft strange;
"brrrr-brrrr-brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...." -noise!
.
whatever they are, certainly add more interest+CHARM* to the city landscape...
~Visual Delightsss...

~XOXO*
& greetings from Singapore!

Early morning is my favorite time of the day ~ so fresh, quiet, and your mind is usually wide awake with wonder!

Great design marvels!

A great way to hide all the ugly machines that run the world! How creative, and it adds to the environment. Morning walks are nice, but I'm a night owl. I just walked Buster on a late night stroll and was amazed by the thousands of fire flies twinking in the vast park! It was almost magical!!! Tootles.

I love the idea of taking something that is decidedly not organic and giving it the feel of such.

The acrobat person statue is pretty cool too.

Frau said...

there's something so magical about walking around in the still-dewy, early morning when no one else is up. I rarely experience this magic, as I can hardly drag myself out of bed when I have to! What cool sculpture/installations . . . I'd love to visit Singapore!

It's so cool! I kinda wonder if you can climb on it...or if they would mind if I did. However, if it houses machinery that could prove to be disastrous.

Ultra-cool designs - cheesy pleasy

Dustjacket Attic said...

Great idea to do a bit of artwork on something unattractive I think, making a bit of a feature of it.

This is just cool. What a great idea that I'm now forwarding to architect hubby, for a bit of inspiration. teehee. Thanks for posting dear!

Sam said...

You're a morning lark! How lovely!! This is very wild design wise! You wouldn't see something so adventurous here in Sydney - which is a shame for us!
