Another place that I recalled visiting during my childhood days was the Oasis, next to the Singapore Indoor Stadium and former National Stadium. Opened in phases from 1969 to 1972: the most memorable structures were the three floating “UFO”s on the river which could be seen while traveling along the ECP.
The Oasis was designed by Pan-Malaysian Group Architects and probably have panoramic views of the Golden Mile opposite which have many architectural icons such the Golden Mile Complex by Design Partnership, Golden Mile Tower by Gan Hock Guan and the Concourse by Paul Rudolph.
The Oasis was demolished in 2010 along with the former National Stadium. It is one of the places I revisited in the process of illustrating my work for the Imaginarium exhibition at the @singaporeartmuseum
I have received inquiries for some of the earlier works on Outram Park & Pearl Bank and the Queenstown Cinema & Bowl. You can find the signed prints at @independentmarketsg .
My summer retrospective. Or, Survival Strategies.
The first is a lovely and light #Bagh print saree from Fabindia, draped very #asilikeit, because saree rules are for purists. And when you’re not doing rules, the saree rules 😂
(I know. Godawful. It’s the heat. Gone to me head.)
The second is my best favourite #pink drink at best favourite watering hole.
the third, quintessential #summer, the #amaltas tree. In my hometown, there are avenues laden with amaltas blossoms. In this godforsaken city, when I see one, I want to stop and take a picture and सेंको eyes. Because so much nostalgia. And so much #yellow.
So yeah, retrospective 🙃
Toyoo Itō ¿cómo podemos relacionar arquitectura y naturaleza?
El MIB fue el punto de partida para que el arquitecto presentara su manera de diseñar a partir de conceptos orgánicos. ("Desarrollando la ligereza en la arquitectura, que asemeja aire y viento") Contó que la imagen de una hierba que nace del agua fue su referencia al comenzar este proyecto, en el cual a través de la deformación de una cuadrícula perfecta llegó al diseño final.

"Here's to the Crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes. They're not fond of rules, and they don't have respect for the Status quo.
You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them, because they change things.
They push the Human Race forward.
And some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the World 🌎 are the ones who do."

So when in Japan, I made sure to get a photo with 🇯🇵 Japan's oldest existing newspaper company #TheMainichi which was established on this Day, 146 years ago (February 21, 1872).
