Clarke Quay is an award winning redevelopment of a historic riverfront district of Singapore, which, since its opening, has drawn tourists and locals alike to its unique blend of local culture and international lifestyle. The 90m SGD upgrade has increased commercial and leisure activities by over 500% making it one of the city’s top leisure landmarks. Clarke Quay consistently attracts over 2m visitors a year and is a major social and tourist component of the brand Singapore. Crucial to its success is the ingenious moderation of the micro-climate through the design of sophisticated shading and cooling systems which reduce the ambient temperature by 4 degrees C while enhancing the quayside and streets with tremendous visual interest.
