Say hello to the Bio-Dome airport

Safdie Architects

First impressions of a new country are inevitably colored by the airport you arrive in -- landing in JFK feels hugely different from, say, Denver International. Which is why Singapore's Changi Airport, one of the busiest in the world, has decided to raise the bar with a $1.5 billion facility expansion. Its code-name? Project Jewel. But honestly, it looks like it could be the sequel to the Pauly Shore classic, Bio-Dome.

Let's take a look... buuuuuddy.

The expansion's being spearheaded by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, best known for his work on Singapore's iconic Marina Bay Sands resort -- you know, the world's most expensive building ($4.7 billion), with the world's greatest hotel pool on its roof.

For Project Jewel, Safdie's team have envisioned a five-story, donut-shaped hub structure that'll link Terminals 1-3, and include luxe shops, entertainment venues, and a giant indoor garden replete with a cascading waterfall. And chances are, you'll be able to dance if you want to, just like Pauly and his hetero lifemate Stephen Baldwin.

There's currently no date set for when construction will begin, but in the meantime you can keep scrolling for more renderings of what the structure'll look like.
