Jewel Changi Airport

Singapore

Jewel Changi Airport is the latest addition to, and centrepiece of, Singapore’s world-renowned Changi Airport. Designed by Safdie Architects, this highly anticipated dome-shaped attraction houses a dynamic mix of retail, leisure, garden and hotel amenities, as well as airport operations. The development is open to the public and transit passengers and connects directly with Terminal 1 as well as Terminals 2 and 3 via link bridges.

Its distinctive domed façade is made of glass and steel, and glitters in the sunlight. At the apex of the roof is an oculus through which water is channelled to the building’s centre – creating a stunning waterfall feature. This 40m tall Rain Vortex is also the world’s largest indoor waterfall and transforms into a light and sound show after dark.

Arup was appointed by Jewel Changi Airport Development (JCAD) to provide acoustic consulting services for the project. We were also appointed by the main contractor Woh-Hup and Obayashi Singapore to provide facade engineering inputs during the pre and post-tender stages, and to build the model prior to development by the specialist façade contractor Mero.

Our acoustics team helped shape a pleasant indoor aural environment with the key stakeholders and defined acoustic and sound system requirements across the development. Working with the contractor, our façade engineering team used parametric modelling to streamline the façade design, resolve possible clashes with the architects, and rationalise the geometry in the best way for construction. We also performed the technical assessment and inspection of the façade during fabrication, production and installation.

Opened in 2019, this dazzling architecture and engineering marvel adds new dimensions and appeal to one of the leading airports in the world.
