Singapore Changi has held a public preview of its SGD1.7 billion (USD1.2 billion) Jewel complex before the official scheduled opening on 17 April.
The 135,700 m 2 multifunctional development, which is built on the site of the former open-air car park for Terminal 1 (T1), was designed by Safdie Architects. A distinctive dome-shaped façade covers an indoor garden with more than 100,000 plants.
