Project: SPS: Jewel Changi Airport
The Exploratorium partnered with PWP Landscape Architecture to create two immersive fog installations—Foggy Bowls and Canopy Bridge—for the iconic Singapore destination: Canopy Park at Jewel Changi Airport, a joint development by Changi Airport Group and CapitaLand.
Opened in April 2019, Jewel features Moshe Safdie’s light-filled architectural design, and includes 134,000 square meters (1.4 million square feet) of mixed-use space. Canopy Park, designed by PWP and located on Jewel’s top level, also features gardens, walking trails, playgrounds, dining, and views of Jewel’s centerpiece—the five-story Forest Valley.
Visitors can stroll through the fog on the Exploratorium’s Canopy Bridge, suspended 23 meters (75 feet) above the ground. In the middle of the bridge, glass panel decking offers captivating views of Jewel’s multilevel space and the Rain Vortex indoor waterfall. Foggy mist bursts from nozzles on the bridge, giving visitors the sensation of walking inside a cloud.
The Exploratorium’s Foggy Bowls offer an even more intimate fog experience. Permanently installed on the fifth floor of Forest Valley, these four, concave bowls are each large enough to hold twenty people. Heavy fog periodically fills the bowls, allowing visitors to play among the clouds.
