Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore: Texlon® ETFE by Vector Foiltec

Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) is envisaged to be a world-class lifestyle destination in Singapore, with a wide range of compelling lifestyle offerings including unique play attractions, a lush garden, shopping and dining experience of world-class standards, a hotel and airport operations facilities. Jewel is scheduled to open in early 2019.

The stunning pictures of Jewel are proof of what a unique project this is.



Vector Foiltec is part of the team behind the Rain Vortex attraction at Jewel.  The 12-meter-wide oculus at the centre of the sophisticated steel and glass roof will be built with Texlon® ETFE. The lightweight material of the Texlon® ETFE system enables a structurally efficient structure, and large column free spaces. The translucent nature of the material will also allow natural light into the spaces below 

Jewel is designed by a consortium of consultants comprising Safdie Architects led by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie, as well as Benoy and local architects RSP.
