OUE Artling ArchiPavilion Design Competition

WOW recently participated in an ArchiPavilion Design Competition hosted by OUE as a part of the SG50 celebration. The design competition called for an “iconic pop-up pavilion space/structure to house a curated collection of Contemporary Art from Asia/South East Asia, initiating a new wave of innovative architecture and defining the future of the built environment in Singapore and beyond.”  Although the WOW design was not selected to be built, our submission will be a part of the winning design exhibition at the National Design Centre opening today and up to 27 February. For more details visit Design Singapore’s website here. Here’s a sneak peak into our proposal for the ArchiPavilion on display at the NDC.
