Singapore Changi Airport has opened another public green space – Enchanted Garden, the first "interactive-immersive garden" that emulates a magical forest through sights and sound. It is also the airport's fifth themed garden after Orchid Garden and Sunflower Garden, also in Terminal 2 (see here), Cactus Garden in Terminal 1 (which had completed renovation last year; see more here and here), and Butterfly Garden in Terminal 3. Located in the departure transit mall, the facility is accessible to all passengers at no cost and open round-the-clock.
The centrepiece of the garden comprises four giant glass bouquet sculptures, decorated with reflective and shimmering stained glass. A variety of freshly-cut flowers and soft ferns are nestled in these glass bouquets.
Another aspect to this space is its interactiveness: Once visitors weave through the garden the motion sensors will trigger sounds of nature and blooming flowers, while fibre-optic and LED lighting embedded in the floor will form a carpet of sparkling lights. A fish pond is also featured here, filled with archerfish and koi. Visitors may obtain fish food from the stationed staff and feed these habitants of the airport.
“This new garden represents Changi Airport’s commitment to give our passengers a wonderful experience and great memories with our attractions – in this case, our well-loved gardens,” said Yeo Kia Thye, senior vice president for airport operations, Changi Airport Group.
