The rise of Singapore from a colonial port city to one of the world’s most vibrant and successful nations has been the business of its extraordinary leaders. During the four and half decades since its independence, Singapore has grown form being a developing country to one of the most developed nations in Asia, despite its small population, limited land space, and lack of natural resources. Lee Kuan Yew has stated that Singapore’s only natural resources are its people and their strong work ethic.
Our work here involves the branding and interior design of the Art gallery and its exhibition, Living Legacy, featuring more than 200 oil paintings, other visual media and audio commentary. The space is divided into three sections: 1.)The Colonial Period, focusing on the landing of Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819 and the beginning of British colonial rule; 2.)Images of Everyday Life, depicting struggles for survival under colonial rule, the deprivations of war, confrontation with communism, federation with Malaysia; 3.)Modernisation & Industrialisation, documenting the remarkable achievements of Singapore’s founding fathers: Lee Kuan Yew, Dr. Goh Keng Swee, Toh Chin Chye, S.Rajaratnam, Lim Kim San and Eddie Barker to name a few.
