This short film provides a brief tour of Safdie Architects’ Jewell Changi Airport in Singapore, which is home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
The airport, completed by Safdie Architects in 2019, takes the form of a plant-filled greenhouse surrounded by shops and public spaces including a netted play park.
Its centrepiece is the Rain Vortex, a 40-metre-high indoor waterfall that can channel 10,000 gallons of water a minute, making it the tallest indoor waterfall in the world.
The glass and steel bagel-shaped roof that encloses Jewell Changi Airport spans more than 200 metres at its widest point and was engineered to provide optimal growing conditions for the plants.
