Singapore may be a primarily urban place, but it also contains one of the world’s great green spaces: the first and only tropical botanic garden to be given the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site. A World Icon uses cutting edge aerial cinematography to capture the Garden’s design and architecture from a bird’s eye view, then descends to ground level, capturing each leaf and petal of the garden’s profusion of biodiversity, telling the story of how a modest tropical garden became a truly iconic park.


Directed by Peter Lamb and produced by Donovan Chan.
