I dont think so, but there was a graphic of a dove over the island, and it looks damn perfect! :D

The head is where the CBD is lah, and it explains why the MRT route was good, coz it is like the three main arteries of the bird. That was before the woodlands extension appeared, of coz. ;)

The head is at the city (the beak facing the east), the tail is the that area up in the north between Kranji and Seletar rivers. One wing goes to the west and folds up towards Lim Chu Kang. The other goes towards Changi. ;)

The Gateway at Beach Road has affected the feng shui of the buildings nearby.

The Parkview Square ,if you notice ,is perfectly framed by the twin towers.This is to avoid the sharp edges from runnung into it.But ,unfortunately ,The Gateway East's edge runs into the Raffles Hospital.



The Concourse's characteristic mulit-faceted façade has something to do with Jalan Sultan running into it.

The same goes with Balestier Point's dizzying multi-recessing façade.

Hmm..... I thought Concourse's design was just another Paul Rudolph's trademark facade. You can spot an almost similar building in Jakarta but scaled down. Then there's also the former Lippo building in HK. Different facade finishing but similar form.
