Nope, it wasn't the winning bid. Another group got it.

That's my guess. I think this concept by Safdie will be more iconic. The winning design, though very pleasant looking in that Ikea sense, is rather conventional.

More renderings from Safdie website:

See what I mean?

I think the idea was to highlight the old buildings being redeveloped.

Well, whatever it is, the bid is over. The government has made its decision and that's that.

I know but it is done. I think the goverment wants to be more conservative. Anyway, construction work is ongoing. Let's just see the progress.

There is much space around the atrium, not unlike some sort of quasi-quadrangle, or a square. But soon, the mall operator will start to rent these spaces out to small mobile stores. Like Plaza Singapura, Bugis Junction, whatever space used for this commercial purposes will be cluttered.

Back to what Spore really is - pasar malam.

The winning bid is a safe and boring design.

I just realized this will look more or less like Hotel Rendevous.

another failure in judgment. Should have chosen to M. Safie's one.
Like the ICT at Marina South - plain ugly.

Well, it is still okay. It is just safe, not ugly.

IMO, though, they should have taken the Safdie design.

Hi Mith252

A million Thank QQ for your generous update and sharing.
I hope the old buildings can be restored to Parisian or old London chic.
