George Lucas' Awesome Singapore Sandcrawler Building

Yes, this eight-storey building looks like a Jawa sandcrawler made of glass and steel because it is a sandcrawler made of glass and steel. Lucasfilm is now building it in Singapore. It will be their first overseas production facility.

The sandcrawler-inspired complex was designed by architectural firm Aedas. It's actually quite beautiful, especially its Endor-ish interior patio. The complex will house production offices for Lucasfilm, LucasArts, TV and feature animation teams, as well as a 100-seat movie theatre.

The complex is now being built in Fusionopolis and it will be completed by late 2012. [Aedas and Lucasfilm via Inhabitat]
