Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Designed by Safdie Architects, the Marina Bay Sands features 2,561 hotel rooms, casino, convention center, shopping mall, two theaters, six celebrity chef restaurants, eight fine dining restaurants, a slew of casual eateries, two floating Crystal Pavilions (one housing a world famous lounge, the other a fashion designer's store), artscience museum and a ice skating rink.

Though it is a massive playground for well-to-do vacationers, it is the architecture that I find most fascinating.

At 650ft high, the infinity pool is three times the length of an Olympic pool.
