Architecture - School of the Arts Singapore



























In March 2004, the Singapore Government accepted the recommendations of a Committee on Specialised Arts School to set up Singapore's first independent pre-tertiary arts school to nurture youths talented in the arts, with the vision to groom the next generation of artists, creative professionals and individuals who are passionate for, and committed to the arts in a multi-cultural society.

The School of the Arts offers a unique connected arts and academic curriculum for youths aged 13 - 18.

The School opened in 2008.



Enjoy some photos of what I think is one of Singapore's modern architectual achievements.

Very interesting. I like in particular the lower parts of the building, the mixture of shapes, angles,material, colour etc. It really breaks up what could have been just a boring flat surface.

The building has at least two characters, one from each direction, but they seem to blend well.
As an education establishment, the building must, I feel, truly help the students to think outside the square.

I'm fascinated by the shape, and the greenery! Love the green!
