From the architect. In June 2014 Singapore celebrated the opening of Asia’s first integrated sports, leisure, entertainment and lifestyle destination – the Singapore Sports Hub. Located on a stunning, central, 35-hectare waterfront site, Sports Hub provides a unique ecosystem of sporting, retail and leisure spaces, at the pivot between Singapore’s expanding city centre and the wider public community.
Sports Hub is a key project in the Government of Singapore’s urban redevelopment and sports facilities master plan – ‘Sports Singapore Vision 2030’ – promoting a more sustainable, healthy and active society at all levels of participation, nation-wide. Designed for long-term legacy usage from the outset, Sports Hub will set a new standard for adaptability and social integration. By providing premier venues for major sports events, and inviting and inclusive public destination spaces, the Sports Hub is an elite world class sports destination that encourages everyday public participation throughout the year.
