Resorts World at Sentosa, Singapore michael graves & associates and dp architects pte Ltd
The Resorts World at Sentosa was designed by lead
architect Michael Graves and Associates and local architect
DP Architects. The $SGD5.2 billion development covers
49 hectares at the southern end of Singapore. Designed as
a collection of resorts within a resort, the architects were
challenged to provide an overall composition of buildings,
form, and mass that responds well to the existing tropical
island setting of Sentosa Island, while meeting the rigorous
evaluation process of the Singapore government.
MicroStation and Bentley Architecture provided an optimum
mix of flexible licensing, quality renderings, and interoperability.
The design teams were able to seamlessly interoperate
between external consultants, while Bentley’s Enterprise
License Subscription allowed the project team to quickly
add the number of licensed software needed for the project.

The Marina Bay Integrated Resorts competition was a
contested competition for the first of two highly anticipated
integrated resorts, which includes a casino and related
meeting, incentives, convention, and exhibition space.
Four proposals were received for the Marina Bay site
at the southern part of Singapore, with each committing
to spend between $SGD4 billion to $SGD5 billion to
build a world-class resort.
Polshek Partnership Architects and DP Architects were chosen
and faced the challenge of developing a feasible and winning
design in four months with two teams on different continents.
MicroStation became the common platform between the two
firms and Bentley’s Enterprise License Subscription program
provided Bentley’s comprehensive portfolio of integrated
solutions without incurring huge capital expenditures as
production ramped up.
