Modern Architecture – Singapore’s Super-Tall Solar Trees (6 pics)

Designed by architecture firm Grant Associates, Bay South is set to become Singapore's largest garden project when it opens in 2011.

The project's most striking feature is its super-tall tree structures, which function as towering vertical gardens that collect rainwater and solar energy to sustain the garden. The supertrees will range from 100-180 feet (30-55 meters) in height and will be wrapped in ferns, vines, and tropical flowers. At night, the canopies will come alive with lighting and projected media.
