The Singapore Pavilion profiles local architects and design talents on an international stage through projects that explore and celebrate the different ways in which Singaporeans share public spaces. Drawing upon local spatial typologies, the exhibition showcases everyday stories representing a broad crosssection of culture and society, and allow visitors to experience a uniquely Singaporean style of gathering and living together.
To gather explores gatherings through Singapore’s urban context where the majority of the population lives in public housing and where designed spaces of different scales such as hawker centres, community hubs, void decks2 and sky gardens meaningfully contribute to public social life.
The projects is presented on 16 round tables within the Pavilion, inspired by the spatial typology of local hawker centres.
