It Dazzles The Windbor @ Marina Bay Sands

The Winbor at Marina Bay Sands
See it dazzles..

'The Wind Arbor is the largest and most visible piece of Marina Bay Sands’ Art Path.
It covers 6,800 square meters,
equivalent to the surface area of 5 and a 1/2 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The sculpture consists of 260,000 aluminum metal “flappers”
covering the entire western façade of the
Hotel Atrium facing the Central Business District
and encircling the air-conditioning towers
at the north end of the resort.
When the flappers move, they reflect light creating a shimmering piece of art.
It is 15 meters tall at the north end and rises to 55 meters at the southern entry.
The flappers are mounted on hinges and hung from steel cable
so they are free to move independently in reaction to wind movements.'

So when you are in the vicinity, do STOP! to watch and admire the art.
