Singapore symphony of sound

SINGAPORE celebrates its National Pavilion Day today.

The music-box-like Singapore Pavilion in Zone B is a two-story structure with an "Urban Symphony" theme.

The theme is inspired by the harmony of elements in Singapore: progress and sustainability, urbanization and greenery, tradition and modernity and a cosmopolitan mix of residents of different races living peacefully together.

The two elements -- water and gardens -- are essential parts of the pavilion's design, which incorporates musical fountains, an interplay of sounds and visuals, and a roof garden to evoke the country's rhythm and melody.

In the plaza outside the pavilion, fountains provide a prelude to the "Urban Symphony."

When night falls, the fountains are illuminated and colored lights flow from the facade of the "music box."
