“The Garden City” series mixes Peranakan porcelain & lush foliage. The vision for Singapore is to be a city that is not only functional but also beautiful. This can easily be seen just by looking at all the lush foliage that contrasts with the structures of skyscrapers. The geometric patterns such as the hexagon & pixilated squares mimic the structures of the city's architecture.
A ‘Garden City’ is not just utilitarian, it is a place that flourishes largely due to its beauty. Like beautiful artworks, a beautiful natural environment plays an important role in our mental health and overall well-being.
