Just one of many installations that we are doing for this year’s Singapore Arts Festival. We are designing a temporary village to house the event, a kind of lantern city of wood and canvas buildings. All of them are what Dave Hickey calls “sophisticated duh”–a kind of beautiful crudeness. The Black Rabbit is a Hejduk-esque folly for the children’s portion of the village. We will post images of the rest as it comes up. MORE PHOTOS

The nests are a pair of large-scale steel installations for the 8 Nassim Hill project, near Orchard Road in Singapore. We were the landscape architects for this project, but we came to do a number of highly detailed and specialized works in various areas (such as the Lantern Benches, below). Shown above is the cut-line drawing for the fabrication of Nest 1, as well as the finished piece for Nest 2. The diameter of each is 3 meters. MORE IMAGES

We are finishing the prototyping process on a series of tetrahedral forms that will be installed at the roof garden of a new condominium in Singapore. These are large fiberglass units, and will float in a shallow pool. They are translucent, and designed to glow white. We are the landscape architects for the project; the building is being designed by our friends at FARM. MORE PHOTOS
