The Gallery is the first museum in the world dedicated to Southeast Asian modern art. The project itself consisted of a minimal architectural intervention that symbolically unifies two historic buildings: the Supreme Court and City Hall and transforms them as part of a spectacular architectural design. A sweeping glass-and-steel roof structure, held up by tree-like supports, is placed above the buildings, linking them together. This light and airy roof structure functions as the public sign of the new National Gallery Singapore. The auditorium fitted with our Fanny BR is the result of a close collaboration with Studio Milou Architecture, a French architectural firm that specialise in the design of museums and cultural spaces.
