The $1.5 billion dollar facility, dubbed Project Jewel, will house five stories of high-end retailers, adorned by a lush indoor garden and a waterfall on the top floor.

The donut-shaped glass and steel structure will be connected to the Changi Airport‘s three terminals through glass walkways.

Safdie is well known in Singapore and the world for fusing together the realms of nature and architecture in his 85 projects spread over 5 continents. At the Canada World Fair in 1967, Safdie broke ground with his Habitat 67 project, which was also his master’s thesis, reinventing the apartment building to make each unit feel like a separate home. He then constructed the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Yad VeShem, in Israel, Singapore’s magnificent Marina Sands Resort, the United Institute of Peace in Washington D.C., and the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

Lee Seow Hiang, Changi Airport’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are very excited about this opportunity to create at Changi Airport an iconic global attraction that will capture the hearts of both tourists and Singaporeans.

“For tourists, we envisage Project Jewel to be a must-visit Singapore attraction, located strategically at the doorstep of one of the world’s busiest air hubs, and an extension of the Changi brand promise that many travelers worldwide have come to know us for. For Singaporeans, it will be an exciting, world-class destination right here at home, where they can relax and enjoy with their loved ones, again and again.”

Project Jewel will be another grand structure in the wealthy city-state, certain to make the already fifth busiest airport in the world a whole lot busier.
