Keppel Shipyard 4

By the mid 70s, Singapore had a well entrenched reputation for ship repairs. The result? In 1965, Singapore's port was the fifth largest in the world. By 1982, it was the world's busiest (by shipping tonnage) port. It is said that any moment, there are about a thousand ships in Singapore waters, with a ship arriving into or leaving Singapore every two to three minutes. 

 

PS: an acquaintance of mine once told me, that he thought architects look into their toletries for inspiration - he thought this group of towers and the shorter blocks to the right, looks like a toothbrush. And he swore a building he saw in Hong Kong resembled an electric shaver.

Your theory about toiletries is a very interesting one Ayush

I like your series about the Keppel Shipyard, Ayush. It has also quite the history. Look how tiny the "cable-cars" are, high up in the air. The harbour is on a very strategic waterway and they have their act together.
That is a quite interesting observation about the toothbrush and the shaver... I wonder how the shaver would look.. I tried to find it, but no result.
I have just been catching up on this series Ayush. Strange buildings...I think your friend may have a point grin

I bet there is a wonderful view from the cable cars.My home city has a big container terminal but nothing like that of Singapore. It is the main port from cruise ships in the UK, though.
These buildings could resemble beard trimmers.
Those buildings look like semi-ruins!
this is a good composition of the wharf framed with the flowers on your side of the harbor... i agree that the buildings remind me of a toothbrush....petersmile
The info about the place is great... as is your photo! I can see what your friend was talking about re: the toiletries!
Very interesting info on both subjects, Ayush...Singapore as a shipping port and the architecture around it.
i just love those buildings! they look like they were designed by Tim Burton lol

I can see the tooth brush. That fancy bridge looks like one of those new type of floss picks.

These structures are beautiful in an ugly sort of way, Ayush.
