Environment Design Project Three (2009)
An architect would be travelling to Singapore to showcase his works in this travelling exhibition at Boat Quay
To define the exhibition spaces to display his works in the most creative manner
Boat Quay is a historical quay in Singapore which is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River on its southern bank. Since the founding of modern Singapore in 1819, the Singapore River was the artery for much of the island’s trade and economic activities. The south bank of the river, where most of the commerce took place, is known as Boat Quay. In 1986, the Urban Redevelopment Authority announced plans to conserve Boat Quay as part of a master plan. On 7 July 1989, an area encompassing South Bridge Road, Circular Road, Lorong Telok and North Canal Road was gazetted. The two- and three-storey shophouses in that area, with their characteristic five-foot way beneath projecting upper floors, were preserved and transformed into new businesses. The shophouses along the river bank were restored in the 1990s and are now bustling shops, restaurants and bars.

Function - Exhibition Space
To design an exhibition space which includes resting areas for the users and also allow them to enjoy the scenic view of Singapore River. The location of my design will have to be at a quiet spot in order to suit Kengo Kuma’s style. The most important would be to create an open and airy space.
