Infrastructure- Bukit Timah Waterworks

Updated: Dec 30, 2021

Infrastructure as beautiful as it is functional. These beautiful photos make us want to compare it with the Basilica Cistern of Instanbul. Had the chance to take a closer look at the engineering design of this magnificent structure, and it is indeed impressive stuff!

An article by Darren Soh:

In January 2019, I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to photograph Singapore's first waterworks - The Bukit Timah Filters and Clear Water Tank, known today as Bukit Timah Waterworks in a collaboration with PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency and Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA). Bukit Timah Waterworks was built 130 years ago in 1891 and the Clear Water Tank has remained almost unchanged since then. Here is the story of both the facility and the man who made it all possible - James MacRitchie, Municipal Engineer of Singapore. #water #architecture #heritage #conservation
