The Future of Us Exhibition Pavilion
Located between Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay, The Future of Us exhibition pavilion follows the grand tradition of demonstrative expo structures by exploring a new dialogue between a built form and nature for the tropics based on advanced design and fabrication methods in the context of Singapore’s 50th anniversary celebration (SG50) capstone event. Now a permanent landmark, the project accommodates a range of cultural events, continuing its role as a public asset for the years to come.
Statement of the jury
This fascinating aluminium structure is reminiscent of the thatched roofs found in tropical forests. What’s fascinating about the structure is how sunlight streams through the areas of varying thickness. An intelligent design whose aesthetic architecture creates a connection with nature and that is also impressive and poetic.
