Kengo Kuma among finalists in the international competition for a new Founders’ Memorial in Singapore

In January 2019, Singapore invited architects to propose a design for a new memorial dedicated to the country’s founders and the values that have  helped shape the nation.
Almost 200 architectural designs from all over the world were submitted for the project, which is to be constructed at the Bay East garden. The jury has recently selected a total of five proposals by firms, among them is also the architectural practice of the IAA Professor Kengo Kuma and associates in collaboration with K2LD Architects.
The other 4 chosen firms are:
Johnson Pilton Walker + RDC Architects
DP Architects
Cox Architecture + architects61
8DGE + RSP Architects
Each of the offered projects can be explored on the founders’ memorial website, while public feedback is currently being sought. Public’s feedback will be a critical component of the jury’s evaluation in choosing the winning design, which will be announced in 2020.
