Supertree Grove, Singapore Overview

Nestled in Gardens by the Bay of Sentosa Island, the Supertree Grove are artificially made, electronic tree structures. These trees are multifunctional that act as canopies and shade the area during the day and metamorphose into a dazzling exhibit of sound and light at night. These 18 steel-clad concrete structures, measuring between 25 and 50 metres tall, are adorned with around 162,900 plants. The vertical gardens come alive each night with the stunning Garden Rhapsody, a light and sound show.

There are 18 Supertrees in all of the Gardens by the Bay out of which twelve are at the Supertree Grove, and the remaining six are scattered across the Golden and Silver Gardens. Each Supertree can be divided into four parts - the concrete core, the trunk, planting panels and the canopy. The incredibly advanced technology of these Supertrees allows them to function as a regular tree. These trees have photovoltaic cells that allow them to trap solar energy and utilise the same for lighting and accumulation of rainwater that is later used for the fountain displays and so on. They also perform the intake and exhaust functions that contribute to the conservatories cooling procedures. The Supertree Grove also has an elevated walkway called the OCBC Skyway that floats between two of the larger Supertrees, and provide a gob-smacking view of the Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay skyline.

Construction of Supertree Grove

A storm of nature and technology, each Supertree has a trunk core made of reinforced concrete which is wrapped with a steel frame. For the planting of the living skin, the trunks are installed with planting panels. The canopy of the Supertree is lodged with environmentally sustainable functions and is elevated via a hydraulic jack system after being assembled. The Supertree is made up of four essential parts:

The Concrete Core: Reinforced inner vertical system that holds up the supertree
Trunk: The steel frame which is wrapped around the reinforced vertical system for protection and support
Planting Panels: Installed on the trunk to enable planting of the living skins
Canopy: Shaped like an umbrella to give the tree-like shape and structure.

This entire show seems as if displayed from a different world and the viewers are left spellbound after it finishes its magnificence.
