Because it's art! A strange site to see walking around Singapore, taking photos of the city. The thought behind this structure, and the scientific rationale to support, LITERALLY SUPPORT, this giant creation in the Gardens by the Bay boggles the mind. This baby is huge weighing in at seven tons! Apparently, the artist created it to depict his own son, floating above the garden grounds silently. If you are traveling by train to the giant trees (see my other story), then there is no way you can miss it coming from the MRT station. Singapore... you are one interesting and amazing city.
