Yet, NO ONE knows how many tiles it has except for the architects! -It was built in Singapore,Marina Bay. -It was built by Australian architects named the COX group.The leader of this group was Arup -The reason it was built was so the visitors who walked over it can get a chance to see the lake under it.
