Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore

Dramatic entry for cruise ships

The Project

Able to handle the world’s largest cruise ships and more than 6,000 passengers, this expansive cruise terminal stands out for its bold angularity of layered form, inspired by the ebb and flow of waves. Together with other icons along Marina Bay, it offers a dramatic entry point into Singapore.

The Challenge

The major challenge was to dress a low and flat building form to create a distinctive profile visible from a distance. This was achieved through a cubistic interpretation of undulating diagonal roof forms, with the interior design concept continuing this metaphor based on the theme of the undersea world.
