|Supertrees in Singapore are the 18 tree-like structures that dominate the Gardens’ landscape with heights that range between 25 meters and 50 meters.|
They were conceived and designed by Grant Associates, with the imaginative engineering of Atelier One and Atelier Ten.
They are vertical gardens that perform a multitude of functions, which include planting, shading, and working as environmental engines for the gardens.
The Supertrees are home to enclaves of unique and exotic ferns, vines, orchids, and also a vast collection of bromeliads such as Tillandsia, amongst other plants.
They are fitted with environmental technologies that mimic the ecological function of trees: photovoltaic cells that harness solar energy which can be used for some of the functions of the Supertrees, similar to how trees photosynthesize, and collection of rainwater for use in irrigation and fountain displays, similar to how trees absorb rainwater for growth.
The Supertrees also serve air intake and exhaust functions as part of the conservatories’ cooling systems.
There is an elevated walkway, the OCBC Skyway, between two of the larger Supertrees for visitors to enjoy a panoramic aerial view of the Gardens.
