A Hundred Lines

The winning entry from the 5th Award in 2013 celebrates CDL’s role in shaping Singapore’s skyline, and its 50 Years of Greening Singapore.

Above, a gleaming cityscape of crystalline form is suspended in the air, rendered by 50 vertical lines of metal. Below, a landscape of paths, waterways and landforms weave around the city, formed by 50 meandering lines of tropical wood; each engraved with text lines describing 50 local plant species.

Delicately merging, together they are emblematic of the dramatic transformation of Singapore’s skyline and greenery, a vision accumulated stroke by stroke over the years.

The piece was completed in 2018 and is located at Marine Cove.
