Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a premier horticultural attraction for local and international visitors. A showpiece of horticulture and green artistry that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way, it entertains and educates visitors with plants seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from species in cool, temperate climates to tropical forests and habitats.
E&E supplied and installed the entire audio system into the Bay South which grew as the client explored the entertainment possibilities.
The 101-hectare site comprises of three distinctive waterfront areas – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central, attractions include Cloud Forest, Flower Dome, OCBC Skyway and Floral Fantasy.
E&E team worked closely with the client and media content designer to create each separate scene of audio, providing more than 40 channels through the multi-track distributed audio system.
"The theme and challenge for E&E's Design & System Team was 'bringing life to the Garden with sound'," explains E&E Managing Director, Mr Ronald Goh. "Considering the environmental conditions in the two conservatories, which both have different temperatures and humidity levels, the criteria was the careful design of the cabling infrastructure and speakers, and centralised control with multi-track audio distribution across the entire facility, with every speaker zone providing different tracks to give changing ambience throughout."
