Supertree Grove is another feather in the hat of Singapore’s utopian architecture. These ‘Supertrees’ are aesthetically pleasing structures designed to resemble trees. Standing between 25 and 50 meters tall these canopies provide shade in the morning and feature a dazzling light show at night. 12 out of 18 of these Supertrees stand in the Gardens by the Bay, which is a nature park in the heart of Singapore. This botanical garden is so beautiful that it even inspired the artwork of the fictional world of Xander in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy! Read on to learn all about the Supertree Grove and what you can expect from it.

Supertree Grove in a Nutshell

supertree grove
  • Supertree Grove is located in Gardens by the Bay, which is a nature park in the centre of Singapore. More specifically, the Grove is located in the Bay’s south garden.
  • Supertrees are beautiful artificial tree-like structures designed as a perfect balance of nature and technology. They light up to feature a breathtaking and magical spectacle at night and provide shade during the day.
  • These Supertrees are arguably as environmentally friendly as real trees. Some of them have solar panels that store energy for the light show at night. Some others have air exhaust receptacles to cool the surrounding conservatories. All the supertrees collect and use rainwater for irrigation and fountain displays.
  • The core of the Supertree is concrete, and a steel trunk attached around it. The ‘living skin’ or the plants on the trunk are attached via planting panels. The canopy is placed on top like an inverted umbrella to complete the Supertree.
