Officially opened on October 12, 2002, Esplanade was developed at a cost of SGD 600 million.

The building was designed by two architectural firms working in conjunction, the London-based Michael Wilford & Partners (MWP) and DP Architects (DPA) of Singapore. The unique architectural design has been said to have an appearance similar to either a durian (a tropical fruit) or the eyes of a fly. Many Singaporeans refer to the Esplanade as "The Durian".

A special thanks to the following Esplanade staffs for their support and assisitance:
