Gardens by the Bay has two large greenhouses along the seafront: the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Both designed by Wilkinson Eyre, they are intended to showcase eco-sustainable technology, and are architectural masterpieces. The roofs of both the greenhouses stand without the support of columns, and they also collect rainwater and distribute it through the supertrees.

The Flower Dome is the largest glass greenhouse in the world, and reproduces a mild, dry climate, suitable for plants from the Mediterranean, Australia, South America and South Africa. Inside, it is divided into seven different “gardens”, and there is even an entire olive grove.
