“For Lucasfilm’s new campus in Singapore, the studio is building a massive eight-story building in the shape of the iconic Sandcrawler vehicle from the Star Wars franchise.

“Lucasfilm commissioned the architecture firm Aedas to design the building, which had to abide with several strictly defined guidelines that restrict the property’s height and mass.

“Due to the restrictions, the familiar Sandcrawler oblong is sliced on one end to form a horseshoe-shaped footprint, which Aedas said will boost the building’s efficiency.

“The campus will house Lucasfilm’s production facilities, office space, retail outlets and a 100-seat theater, among others.”
