Even though cities have been trying to step up their environmentally friendly game, Singapore has just taken it to a whole new level with the Gardens by the Bay project. Instead of focusing on introducing more biodiversity and eco-conscious architecture in the city, it essentially plans to introduce a city into one giant garden. Thus, it is the gardens and parks that take precedence over the city itself.

Announced last year, the 1 billion Singaporean dollar (US $829 million) Gardens by the Bay project will revitalize the city in ways that only James Cameron could have dreamed up. Already a competitive and prosperous country, Singapore sets itself apart from like-minded societies by supporting its success with the continued reinforcement of sustainability.
