Growth Within

The design concept for the winning entry for the 6th Award is inspired by elements of nature.

It is made entirely out of recycled timber from the construction of the Singapore Sustainability Academy and decommissioned signposts from NParks.

The shape of the sculpture mimics a water urn commonly used in India. The interior comprises more than a thousand wood pieces, hand cut and stacked together, to look like a school of fish swimming together. Under the nourishment of sunlight, the leaves of the sprout, spin along to the rhythm of the wind.

The sculpture was completed in 2017 and is located at the Singapore Sustainability Academy, Level 6, City Square Mall.
