Air-conditioned glass dome to be built over S’pore

Posted on 19 August 2013

To make the island-state feel more inclusive. Literally.


To make Singapore a more inclusive place for everyone of every stripe to feel included, the government has laid out plans to build a giant air-conditioned dome over the island-state.

The dome will provide people on the island a general sense of inclusiveness. Because it will keep them enveloped all the time.

This plan was laid out last night during the National Day Rally 2013 by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Singaporeans interviewed reacted positively as they said a covered dome is the real definition of inclusiveness.

Bao Qi Lai, a Singaporean, said: “All these talk about being welcoming to foreigners and making your fellow Singaporeans feel like they matter are hollow words.”

Another local, Wo De Jia, said: “This is dome, truly, where I know I must be.”

      Changi Airport will be outside the main dome. That’s why they are building a smaller dome (project Jewel) at Changi Airport, that will connect to the main dome via underground MRT line.
