In its Volume 6, Cereal Magazine features some of Singapore’s most impressive architectural landmarks (including The Interlace and Gardens by the Bay) and stages the Lion City’s luxurious nature in its very own way.
Singapore’s love for nature and commitment to build a Garden in the City started back in 1963 when Singapore’s Founder Mr Lee Kuan Yew symbolically planted a Mempat tree in the centre of the city. It was then the start of a major greening campaign for the island-state and its inhabitants.
In 2013 Singapore commemorated “50 years of greening Singapore” and evolved from building a Garden in the City to building a City in a Garden. Today, Singapore counts 4 nature reserves, more than 300 parks, 180 km of nature ways, 200 ha of skyrise greenery, a great island-wide park connector network (400 km of park connectors open to recreational activity) and a rich bio-diversity. 90% is the proportion of households within 10-min walk of a park. Pretty impressive!
The edgy Cereal Magazine staged Singapore’s luxurious nature and architectural landmarks in 2014. The magazine looked into The Interlace or Gardens by the Bay as well as succulents as house plants. Here below is a quick overview.
