21st Century Singapore Architecture | Part 1

Photography: yoursingapore

When Singapore gained its independence from Britain in 1965, it was a poverty-stricken undeveloped country with few natural resources. Today, this island country has one of the world’s fastest growing economies. According to the Corruption Perceptions Index, Singapore is consistently ranked as one of the least corrupt countries in the world, along with New Zealand and the Scandinavian countries. As a result of its location, corruption-free environment, skilled workforce, low tax rates and advanced infrastructure it attracts a large amount of foreign direct investment. There are more than 7,000 multinational corporations from the United States, Japan, and Europe in Singapore and there are also 1,500 companies from China and 1,500 from India.
The prosperity of the Asian country has lead to wealth of incredible architecture. Today, I bring you few of my favourite modern buildings in Singapore. (Big thanks to the world’s most visited architecture website archdaily for the pictures and the information about the buildings.)
