STUDENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM @GARDENS BY THE BAY
 


(31 JULY 2017 - 20 OCTOBER 2017)
 12 WEEKS
 
 CHUA SING YEE VERONICA-ANNE


Reflections of my journey at Gardens by the Bay The course of internship at Gardens by the Bay has been a time of great learning – to be independent and of self-improvement. I found myself challenged to do better and examine the areas of which I am still lacking. At the start of my internship, I gave myself the opportunity to step-out of my comfort zone to explore an environment that is unfamiliar to me. To work with new people and adjust to the culture of the people. Every little task assigned to me, became like little pockets of opportunity, to learn new things and explore new ways of going about the task. Certain task has its technicality while certain task just requires social aspects of interacting with others. I must say that I have picked up new skills and learnt quite a lot. People here are very comfortable to work with, beginning with the culture in the HQ office and in the conservatories – every staff, even the workers, makes the effort to greet each other which seems to me not the norms of life in SG. My mentor too never fails to encourage me to pick up new skills and hopes that I may further my studies. To go beyond what is given to me and explore what’s ahead, not just the things that are in my field of studies. I realised that as days past, I really enjoy being in this field and industry and it gives me a clearer insight into the things I want to pursue in future and into the span of the field of studies and work. Although I see myself far from reaching my goal and having to bridge the gap of being a better designer, nonetheless I am still passionate to strive and achieve myself little by little each day.

JEWEL)CHANGI)AIRPORT)


JEWEL)CHANGI)AIRPORT) CANOPY PARK Spanning about 14,000 sqm, the Canopy Park which sits on the highest level of Jewel features exciting play attractions and serene gardens.

DISCOVERY SLIDES The Discovery Slides is specially designed to be both a magnificent sculpture, as well as a playground for enjoyment. This play attraction features four slides weaved within the sculptural playscape harmonised in a garden environment. Atop the Discovery Slides is a 6.5m platform which offers a magnificent view of the Forest Valley.

SKY NETS The sky is your playground – perfect for thrill-seekers. The Sky Nets is a world's first to be created on such a scale in an indoor environment. This attraction centres around two concepts - a bouncing net and a walking net; one of the highlights is the thrill of walking over a void 25m above the ground!


JEWEL)CHANGI)AIRPORT) CANOPY MAZES Get delightfully ‘lost’ in the Canopy Mazes, which feature two different maze concepts - the hedge maze and the mirror maze. Standing on top of the watch tower in the hedge maze, visitors can help guide others who are making their way through the maze. The mirror maze will be the first-of-itskind to be built in a garden environment, and cleverly uses mirrors to make navigation a challenge for visitors. The hedge maze, which is typically seen in garden settings, has an additional element of fun and mystery through gates that can be pushed within that will change the path of the maze. The maze ends on an elevated watch tower.

CANOPY MAZES The other maze, a mirror maze, is unlike others, which is usually set in enclosed dark settings. The mirror maze sits under Jewel’s glass facade, with plants branching across the top of the maze. Mr Fisher said that the entire maze is a flexible structure that is able to withstand shock as it flexes if a visitor bumps into a mirror.

TOPIARY WALK Be aware by life-size animal topiaries. Other attractions at the Canopy Park include the Topiary Walk, with life-size animal-shaped topiaries, and a petal garden, which will feature seasonal horticultural displays.


JEWEL)CHANGI)AIRPORT) Foggy Bowls Play hide-and-seek amongst the cool misty clouds. The park will also have a play area for young children called Foggy Bowls. Children can play and roll in four mist-filled concave bowls with depths of between 30cm and 65cm,, which will seem like playing in the clouds.

Petal Garden Take in sights and sounds of the Petal Garden, and bask in the beautiful showcase of floral seasonal display.

CANOPY BRIDGE The 50m-long Canopy Bridge offers visitors views of the Forest Valley and Rain Vortex.


JEWEL)CHANGI)AIRPORT) Forest Valley The Forest Valley is a huge five-storey garden, housing one of the largest indoor collections of plants in Singapore. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature within this idyllic valley of verdant landscaping and waterfalls! You can even take a casual hike up the valley, all in air-conditioned comfort.

RAIN VORTEX The 40m-tall indoor waterfall features a light and sound show every night.

HIGHLIGHTS (OTHERS)


ALPINE)GARDEN)

ALPINE PERENNIALS Alpine perennials are those small tough plants that thrive in the harsh environments of a Rocky Mountain home. They perform in the lean, alkaline clay soils, high desert aridness, bitter winters, and the hungry wildlife of western gardens. Alpines grow naturally short with deep roots to preserve their energy even through a drought situation. Alpines are very self-sustainable, requiring little care plus they provide a tightly knit weed barrier in a garden.


ALPINE)GARDEN)

Schynige Platte Botanical Alpine Garden

La Thomasia Alpine Garden

Schynige Platte Botanical Alpine Garden, around since the 1930s, is home to over 600 types of flowers on the Schynige Platte, high above Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland. The flowers, which include edelweiss and deep-blue gentians, bloom between June and the end of September and are well worth the 50-minute trip from Wilderswil aboard a 19th-century rack-and-pinion mountain train. The spectacular view of the Jungfrau, Eiger and Mรถnch is an added perk.

Alpine Garden Thomasia in Le Pont de Nant has been in existence since 1891 and showcases over 3,000 plants and Alpine mountain flowers natural to the area. This valley between the Grand and Petit Muveran mountains in the Lake Geneva region features a wide array of vegetation, including blueberries and gooseberries, and was proclaimed a nature reserve in 1969. The garden is open from May through October, daily, from 11 am. You can go from Lausanne via Bex to Le Pont de Nant.


ALPINE)GARDEN)

APLINE HOUSE (HARLOW CARR GARDEN)

WISLEY ROCK GARDEN (ALPINE)

Flourish in Apline House:

Rock gardens create a niche habitat, providing crevices and pockets into which small and unusual plants can be grown. Rocks can provide shelter from winds, and small free-draining pockets which allow plants which resent waterlogging to survive the winter wet.

Cool and frost (no heat) Dry (protection from winter wet) Good air circulation (automated venting) Shade integral air circulation fans Facility to harvest rainwater from the roof and down pipes


WEEK 1 - 5


HANGING GARDENS  AND  CONSERVATORIES   Nabana No Sato A giant green house, known as Begonia garden has a large display of potted Begonia plants throughout the year.


HANGING GARDENS  AND  CONSERVATORIES  

Longwood (Mounted and hanging orchids) We use our growing space efficiently and can accommodate mounted, hanging, and potted orchids. The hanging teak containers—built by Longwood’s carpenters —allow us to fill the growing houses with even more plants. We also mount orchids to bark and rocks with wire save space and mimic how they would grow in the wild. Eventually the roots take hold and the orchids fasten themselves onto their mounts without the help of wire.
