Singapore has been likened to a 1:1 scale, life-sized gallery of architecture and urban design. URA's latest exhibition, “Singapore 1:1 Island” highlights our 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: the Provision / Production (1965 – 1975); Communication / Connection (1976 – 1985) and Innovation / Distinction (1986 – 2007). The architectural productions weave a story on 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.
The exhibition is part of URA's ongoing effort to promote architecture and urban design (A&UD) excellence in Singapore. It is organised in collaboration with the Board of Architects (BOA), National University of Singapore (NUS), Real Estate Developers' Association of Singapore (REDAS) and the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA).
The exhibition is curated by Dr Wong Yunn Chii, Head of the Department of Architecture at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
