Commendation :  

        Garden City Viscissitude

Design Brief:

From a tiny fishing village to the present urban society, we have seen many advancements in the landscape of our nation. What used to be dense forests was replaced with new modernized buildings, and with the recent addition of the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore has proved to be a true Garden City. Through the Automaton, we wish to portray the green vicissitudes of our changing young nation. Familiar kampong huts and its greenery is placed in juxtaposition with the present Gardens by the Bay and its columnless greenhouse, allowing one to see how much we have changed over the years.
