10 Amazing Modern Architectural Wonders


8. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel – Singapore

Possibly the biggest and most well-known chunk of the Singapore skyline, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino consists of three towers with a giant boat-like structure joining them at the top (57th floor). On said floor, there’s an infinity pool overlooking the entire Central District, a restaurant/chocolate bar, and the ever popular Ku De Ta Club. The ground level connects directly to the metro system and has it’s own shopping mall, which comes complete with a gondola pond, skating rink, and food court. It’s the most expensive stand-alone casino property and is valued at $8 billion. It was designed by ab Israeli/Canadian architect, Moshe Safdie, who says its look was inspired by card decks.
