Model Answer 1:
I have had the opportunity to view a number of public buildings, having a great outside view or exterior, in the big city, where I live, in order to provide facilities and services to the local dwellers. Of course, all of these buildings were built quite some time ago, but today, I would like to talk about a building which has been built rather recently, and of course, it also has an amazing exterior view.

The public building, I want to describe, is called a “postal academy”. Located on the outskirt of the city, this particular public building can easily be considered as a major and beautiful landmark that attracts visitors not only from my own town but also from outside of it pretty much every day. By the way, just to give a brief introduction to this beautiful-looking public building, it is mainly used as a training institute to provide training to postal workers from all over the country. It is a single-unit, round shape building, and it is four-storey high with a very stunning exterior.

Standing tall within the boundary of almost 6 acres of land, this building doesn’t occupy more than 10 thousand square feet of land altogether. But, the rest of the space within the boundary (around the building) has a lot of nicely-trimmed and beautiful-looking flower plants with all kinds of flowers. And, within the trees can be seen 3 large fountains that are sure to cheer up the crowds with their bubbling sounds. Besides, one can also get a complete view of my beautiful city from the top of the building with a mesmerizing lighting effect at the sunset.

Anyway, I really like the building, mainly because it has a rather simple yet classic structure. Besides, the building also had a very sublime painting on it that was certainly very easy on the eyes and yet very distinct in colour. Needless to say, the stunning outside view of the building also was unforgettable.


Model Answer 2:

Where it is:
I would like to talk about a public building with a great outside view, which is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel located in Singapore. This hotel is situated in the heart of Singapore, in the Marina Bay area, and is a popular landmark and attraction in the city.

What type of public building it is:
The Marina Bay Sands is a luxury hotel and resort that is known for its unique architecture and spectacular exterior. It is a high-rise building with three towers that are connected at the top by a massive, boat-shaped structure known as the SkyPark. The hotel also houses a casino, shopping mall, convention centre, and several fine dining restaurants.

What the exterior of this building is like:
The exterior of the Marina Bay Sands is made of glass and steel, and it is truly a sight to behold. The building shimmers in the sunlight, and it is especially beautiful at night when the lights illuminate the entire structure. The three towers are sleek and modern, and the SkyPark is a stunning feature that adds to the beauty of the building.

And explain how much you like it:
Personally, I think that the Marina Bay Sands is an amazing building with a great outside view. The architecture is unique and modern, and the view from the SkyPark is breathtaking. I have visited the Marina Bay Sands twice, and each time I am amazed by the beauty of the building and the view. It is definitely one of the most iconic buildings in Singapore and a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the city.
