Founders Memorial

To celebrate and remember the achievements of the pioneer generation of Singapore’s leaders, the team proposed a seamless architectural gesture, sculpting a singular roofscape that starts out mostly horizontally, before rising into a towering form. Starting from her tumultuous independence years, visitors are treated to an exhibition explaining the events and difficulties of those times, before ending their visit with a panorama of Singapore’s current skyline. The architectural experience was envisaged as a reflection of the nation’s journey from a third-world backwater into a modern, trend-setting metropolis, and then as with the rising roof form, a hope for what lies in Singapore’s future.
