Summary note:
"Situated in Singapore's two national monuments, the building of National Gallery Singapore balances the need to create a distinct identity for the art spaces with a simultaneous celebration of their architectural, cultural and historical significance. With a distinctive metal and glass canopy roof linking the two monuments, the Gallery's setting has also made it the largest visual arts institution in Singapore. Illustrated by stunning photography of the Gallery's development, this book traces the transformation of these iconic buildings into National Gallery Singapore, teling a story of competition, challenges, preservation and innovation." --back cover.
