Jewel Changi Airport opened on 17 April 2019, with thousands flocking to see the spectacle. Singaporean photographer Darren Soh was present at its opening, capturing the world’s largest waterfall amongst lush foliage. Named ‘The Rain Vortex’, this waterfall transforms into a light and sound show in the evening. It also makes use of Singapore’s natural rainfall by circulating more than 10,000 gallons of it per minute, providing cooling and airflow in this landscape.

At Jewel Changi Airport are also collaborations with internationally acclaimed artists. ‘S E N S E’ is Shiseido’s art project. An interactive art installation by Japanese collective teamLab, this installation seeks to create an experience between people and their artwork as they embark on a walking trail at Forest Valley, now one of Singapore’s largest indoor gardens. Using digital technology, this installation engages its audience with a Japanese sense of beauty through art.
This latest architectural wonder was designed by none other than Safdie Architects. It brings together a one-of-a-kind relationship between nature and marketplace and allows us to reimagines the center of an airport as a major public attraction.
