Singapore is probably more famous for architecture than sports. Now, there exists however a place which combines these two elements in a great way. In June 2014 the all new Singapore Sports Hub has opened its doors and revealed some stunning architecture.

Foremost, the National Stadium with its retractable roof. Whereas the stadium already sets a world record with the largest free-spanning dome roof (312m in diameter), I am curious to see how long it takes for sport records to be broken. Next year’s SEA Games (sort of Olympic Games of the South East Asia states) held in Singapore for the first time in more than 20 years will definitely add a lot of entertainment and spectacle and might as well set some new records.

Besides the National Stadium there is much more to discover. The Sports Hub includes the Aquatic Centre, the Indoor Stadium, a new shopping mall and – the highlight for me – a stunning vista over the bay, with Singapore’s skyline as backdrop.
