SOLD OUT [P*DA 2020 Tours] Jewel Changi Airport Tour with Safdie Architects (16 Sept, 4pm)

Jewel Changi Airport has redefined the notion of an aviation transit hub by creating a public-centric facility for both travellers and domestic visitors. It represents a new typology which combines retail spaces, passenger conveniences and a garden within a climate-controlled glass enclosure.

Hailed as an architectural marvel and home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, this President*s Design Award 2020 gem beautifully integrates architecture, engineering and landscaping into a singular, iconic form.

Come discover the mastery of Jewel’s design and get behind-the-scenes insights, from the concept to the execution of details, in this special tour by the architects themselves!

She leads the firm’s efforts in Asia and works closely with Moshe Safdie and a core team of leaders.
