Lol...is dat really a need to be so sad. Though i rooted for 8th wonder, i wld lyk to congratulate genting. Singapore was a winner right from the start. The govt. doesn't even need to come out a single cent yet earn $600 mil...it itself is already such a gd offer. Now that the results are out, we shd juz be optimisitic and see wad genting can really offer us. Perhaps the govt. award neither 8th wonder nor kerzner for a reason. The south islands could be our 3rd IR location? *HINT* *HINT*

I love the whole concept of the caldera, reminds me of KING KONG the movie. The hideaway hotels looks lyk a scene from Star Wars Epi 3. The island can be surrounded by these orginally proposed by Grant Ass. for the Garden by the bay project with the caldera in the centre?

We shall see in the first quarter of 2007 where the govt request for proposals for the southern islands.....

some of the concepts proposed by 8th Wonder would be more in line with the Southern Islands development IMO

The Genting proposal is designed to cater for a large catchment of the emerging Asian middle class giants (India & China & of course Indonesia) in my opinion, and the easy interpretation of the Genting design screams resort, casino, oceanarium, with a globally famous name like Universal Studios thrown in.

Star Cruises is also likely to use Singapore as a hub for its cruise business & work synergistically with Genting to increase business. A win-win for Singapore.

Yes.....I guess Star Cruise can help develop the new cruise hub too...

I voted for Kerzner because it reminds of some of Frank Gehry's work. It's unusual but in a good way I think. I wouldn't be too disappointed with Harry's Island either. Genting's is simply ugly, way too generic. Nothing special at all.

agreed! (looked up at the POLLS) hmm..

kerzner is FUTURE and 8th wonder is ADVENTURE and GENTING..???? i dunno fill this up..

hehe kerzner's organic forms(very much IN) will do as fine for me as 8th wonder's... but gentings erhh.. hehe will see in 2009
JUST LOOKED at 8th wonder's design for the OVERALL IR BID. same to kerzner's These two are a POWERHOUSE.. hehe cant get rid of mah eyes.
thier deisgns are SUPREAME.. innovative.. DARING... (looks at the companies PORTFOLIO.. hhehe the 2 are still the best..)
what i loved about the other two is that they did not focus on just amusement parks.. well for sure there should be an entrance fee for genting's universal theme park... for that.. no free entrance like one's of Harry's
but what i dig for Kerzner's and 8th wonder that there are more than just those..
hmm i really liked what 8th wonder rooted for Wedding's (vera wang establishments), Culinary schools, and Multimedia.. which genting lacks a lot..
for what i think of... Singapore is a good place to study culinary arts because of it's diversity and there are open for foreign students.. same to having weddings... and singapore having to host 2006 CG international convention in Multimedia..
but it's a 1st for 8th wonder team, maybe that the issue? lolz..
BUT the PROMOTION team of 8thwonder for Harry's Island is same as what the SANDS did for the 1st IR bid which genting lost(poor proposal).. THEY are the most POPULAR CHOICE.. to bad for 8th wonder considering that the made a WEBSITE plus VIDEO 8-10 promotions and very confident, buildable for sure.. they offer MORE HOTEL and ACCOMODATIONS for sure TOURIST can be major thing this will be a HIT!!..
I think a better place for 8th wonder and kerzner is CHINA or DUBAI or EUROPE where architectural designs boom high class.. PEACE!! hehe..
genting is just entertainment....(silence) gambling....and same to honkong's disneyland weee?
and as for i belive that this is an architectural forum.. wahehe.. where designs are issue.. JOKE.. ^__^
weehh i will try to be optimistic wahhh dish ish hard though but i'll try.. erhh wahh!!
