|The Star, Singapore (Completion year: 2012)|
The design for The Star celebrates the rich and diverse happenings inside the building with a multifaceted, permeable and dynamic design, blurring the boundaries between public and private realms as well as retail and cultural components.
The 62,000-square-metre development comprises The Star Performing Arts Centre with a 5,000-seat theatre, and The Star Vista with food and beverage based retail facilities. The south elevation is completely opened up and its facilities are clearly visible from outside. One can crawl under, transverse around and climb onto the complex via a series of ramps, escalators and terraces.
