• AECOM to design Singapore’s landmark Sports Hub

    7 November 2010

    AECOM recently announced that it has been appointed as masterplan architect and landscape architect for the landmark Singapore Sports Hub.

    Located on a prominent 350,000m2 waterfront site at Kallang Basin, AECOM will create a parkland setting featuring innovative stormwater management and sustainable water usage.

    This major project is being designed as collaboration between AECOM, ArupSport and DPArchitects and includes Singapore’s new national stadium, an Olympic standard aquatic centre, and a sports library and museum along with retail, restaurant and entertainment space.

    Singapore Sports Hub includes an Olympic-standard 55,000 seat national stadium with retractable roof, a 6,000-capacity indoor aquatic centre that meets world tournament standards, a 3,000-capacity multipurpose arena, a watersports centre and a mix of commercial, leisure and retail space in a parkland setting close to Marina Bay. The contract is for the design, construction, financing and operation of the Sports Hub for 25 years.

    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.


    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
