Changi Airport - Terminal 3

The size, the space, the clean-cut lines engaged my senses as I explored the layers of the new Terminal 3 of Changi Airport.

Chairs that are like pieces of artwork.
These spices are decorative items in the food court in basement 1. Sophisticated system high above that lets in the right amount of light by controlling the movable panels below the skylights.
Like a spaceship ready to take off. I half expect to see characters from Star Wars moving around.
Even the floor shines like a mirror.
Decipher the code?
Garbage reception that promotes kindness to the earth.
The viewing gallery, a great way for retirees to be entertained in the future.
Ice-cream at Swenson's if you fancy.
A jungle encased in concrete.
These hi-tech panels again!
I am reminded of nurseries in delivery wards in hospitals.
Looks like you are being watched everywhere.
The blue colour - so cold and mysterious.
My favourite part of the Terminal.
Two huge marble sculptures titled 'Floral Inspiration' by well-known local sculpturess Han Sai Por. This is the first time that I have seen and touched her masterpieces.
Looks like a mini-replica of the Evolution Garden in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. This area is out-of-bounds to visitors like us.
You might think that 40 thieves could have hidden in these pillars.
Pretty water feature.
