Having recently been to Sentosa, and seeing the monstrosity of a pile of rubble that Genting is putting up and calling an Integrated Resort, I cannot help but wax lyrical about the architectural masterpiece that the Singapore government passed over.

Why.. why… why…

  1. I don’t know if I agree with “architectural masterpiece” I seriously took 15 seconds to determine I was not looking at a discarded shrimp tail. In contrast I kind of like the way the building they went with is reminiscent of a steam ship, but I’m probably playing devil’s advocate so I’ll stop.

    • I agree that it is not the crowd pleaser and it will have it proponents as well as opponents, but interesting architecture nonetheless. Which is a lot more than the current monstrosity. *groans*
