A reservoir 23 years in the making

Dear Straits Times,

I refer to the 21 Nov 2010 report of the Marina Reservoir operation launch.

It was reported that the Marina Reservoir was MM Lee’s vision 23 years in the making. How can this be true when it was also reported that three years before MM Lee’s reported vision, it was world renowned architects Kenzo Tange and I.M. Pei who suggested that a Marina lake would form a unique focal point for the city? At best we can only speak of MM Lee’s borrowed vision much like all the other things supposedly credited to him.
