Abstract

The Marina Bay was identified as the venue for the National Day Parade for 2007 and subsequent years. The concept was to create a large usable space on water for mass spectator events and to design it as a multi-purpose facility to be used for sporting activities, mega festivities, cultural performances and water activities. The pontoon-type floating platform technology was adopted to create the large-scale floating performance stage. The Marina Bay floating platform measured 120 m long, 83 m wide and had a depth of 1.2 m and was built by assembling fifteen modular steel pontoons. This floating stage, completed in April 2007, is believed to be the world’s largest floating performance stage.
