URA Presents: Singapore 1:1 (Island) Exhibition
3–26 Oct . 10am–9pm. Promenade Level 7, National Library
Singapore has been likened to a 1:1 scale, life-sized gallery of architecture and urban design. "Singapore 1:1 Island" highlights our nation's architectural and urban design uniqueness through a selection of architectural projects completed island-wide, outside of the city centre, over the past four decades.
"Singapore 1:1 Island" is a follow-up exhibition to "Singapore 1:1 City" launched by President S R Nathan in 2005. It is curated along 3 themes: Provision / Production (1965-1975); Communication / Connection (1976-1985) and Innovation / Distinction (1986-2007). The architectural productions weave a story of the distinct character in the history of Singapore architecture. The variety of works exhibited, ranging from residential and commercial buildings to public institutions, demonstrates the diversity and creative energy of architectural talents in Singapore.
