CONCEPT & DESIGN
Drawing from the notion of nostalgia, the unexpected result is a pineapple-shaped pastel dreamscape. Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats and the iconic playgrounds that came with them, represented the living spaces of Singapore yesteryears. The pavilion itself recalls a beloved ‘pineapple’ playground, formerly located at Tampines Central Park. With urban redevelopment, such playgrounds took on standardised forms - leaving their fruit-based versions imprinted upon collective memory.
