Revival Cultural Arts Centre (RCAC) is a performing arts centre in Singapore. They aim to regain the significance of culture through the arts. More Singaporeans, especially the young, need culture to stay rooted. By spreading knowledge on the beauty of Singaporeâ€™s diversity, it enables people to understand and appreciate one another from a different point of view. RCAC is a place for the young and old to come together and celebrate great tradition and culture.
Outram Park MRT 5
Duxton Plain Park
RCAC is located in the North end of Duxton Plain Park, near Chinatown. The park is a node for passersby who are usually workers or residents who use the park. With the new reconstruction of Pearl Centre, this area will attract more and more users. There are two nearby MRT stations, both five minutes away from RCAC. It connects 4 MRT lines to one place, including the upcoming Thomson-East Coast line. This makes RCAC easily accessible from regions all over Singapore. RCAC got its inspiration from the surrounding culture there, like Chinatown, the old shophouses, Chinese clan associations and the Sri Layan Sathi Vinayagar temple just behind.
The large rooftop glass deck allows natural light in for the basement level. This saves energy during the day as minimal light is used. During events and performances, audiences can also watch from the deck above as performers travel up the ramps and interact with the crowd.
A curved ramp inside RCAC leads visitors from the first level down to the basement, which is where the facilities are. Performers will have backstage rooms specifically for them. The lighting, props and sound room will also be along this stretch. The information counter is there to inform new visitors of the upcoming performances that will be held as well as opportunities for other performing groups to perform as well.
The food court is where visitors dine while enjoying the performances that will be held on the main stage. The range of Singaporean cuisine is to suit the cultural aspect of RCAC. However, what truly compliments the performances will be on the old school snacks like kachang putih, kuehs and tidbits. With the restoration of old and traditional food, RCAC hopes to attract both the young and old.

Jelutong Kayak Sports Centre (JKSC) is situated in Pulau Ubin, Singapore. The aim is to attract visitors from mainland Singapore to learn about biodiversity through water sports. After kayaking, families can dine and relax at this centre, overlooking the view of Singapore. JKSC welcomes people of all ages and provides a new learning experience for beginners as well as professionals.
JKSC is accessible via ferry from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. Users can drop off immediately there or take a 10 minute walk from the main jetty, where they can also rent bicycles. The specific location at Jelutong Campsite, gives a great viewing point of Singapore. It is a convenient place for kayaking which gives users a full experience of Pulau Ubin. Due to the great biodiversity of Pulau Ubin, it becomes an opportunity for learning to take place. JKSC will then be able to hold school trips for Singaporean students and expose them to the rich heritage of Pulau Ubin.

A steel truss is used to withstand and support the weight of the curved green roof. Rainwater collected after plant irrigation flows down the thick columns and into the filtration system in the kitchen, which then becomes clean reusable water.

The bold curve design of JKSC is meant to contrast with the landscape of Jelutong. The design of it also makes it easily accessible for cyclists that visit Pulau Ubin. For those keen in kayaking, their journey will begin at the information centre and end when they leave the centre down the kayak ramp. Along the way, they will need to prepare for the course/tour at the briefing area and pick out a kayak at the storage. Afterwards, they can rest and relax at the restaurant or floating deck. As for other visitors, they can either walk, cycle or enter the centre via ferry which will drop them off at the restaurant for a dine-in.
Illusi, which translates to â€œIllusionâ€?, is a student hub located in Temasek Polytechnic (TP). This hub was created for the students of TP. It is a space where all students from different courses and schools can mingle and unite. The location is next to the Adventure Learning Course which includes high and low elements. Sometimes there will be short courses held for the students. Illusi can also be used as a proper resting area for them. The hub provides an open stage for school activities like performances and camps. Seatings are unique because the audience will have to climb on swing-like pentagonal platforms that hang from the ceiling at different heights. The exterior of the hub has ropes that allow students to climb around the stucture. This becomes something unique to TP.
In relation to the Global Connect Village (GCV) nearby, colored glass panels are also used for the roof and walls of the hub. With the help of natural lighting, the pentagonal panels create interesting colored shadows on the ground, especially when the colours overlap. There are 3 types of panels: glass, rope and a combination of both. The variation allows wind to pass through at certain areas, shelter from the rain and safety of the climbers.
Cadeira, meaning â€œChairâ€? in Portugese is made up of rubber tyres and cotton twine. That name is used because rubbers originate from Brazil and their main language is Portugese. The cotton twine is used to unite the 3 tyres together to create a rocking chair. Users do not have to use much balance in order to sit on this chair and they need not worry about rolling out because of a stopper attached in the front. The criss-cross pattern in the centre of the tyre supports and also creates comfort for the user.
Cadeira has participated in 2 events and they are Sustainable Idealism at the ArtScience Museum in 2016 as well as PARK(ing) Day 2017. It has made several appearances in MediaCorp TV stations like Suria and also Channel News Asia.
