This paper presents the systems engineering solutions implemented in developing a large floating performance stage that was constructed at the Marina Bay of Singapore. The Marina Floating Platform is designed to be a multi-purpose facility on the bay for mass spectator events, sporting activities and cultural performances, as well as be a re-configurable “piers” for water sports and boat shows. This floating platform was completed in 2007 and is believed to be the world’s largest floating performance stage on water. It hosted the nation’s National Day Parade 2007, the first parade to be held on water. Since then, the floating platform and its seating gallery have been used as the venue for lifestyle events, extreme sports, the Singapore Fireworks Festival and Water Carnival. The floating platform opens up new possibilities in space creation in land-scarce countries such as Singapore.
