The exhibition space is the largest in Southeast Asia at 20,000 square feet, and the 5-meter-high ceilings make it an especially striking space for large-size artworks. The architectural design is by Kengo Kuma, the world-renowned architect who designed the Tokyo Olympic Stadium as well as Singapore Founders' Memorial. “Singapore boasts a global hub port in Southeast Asia. A large-scale warehouse space facing the port was converted into the largest gallery space in Asia. At the reception, visitors are welcomed by a space under the trees symbolizing the abundant nature of Singapore, and are led out of the hustle and bustle of the city into an extraordinary world of art in the sunlight filtering through the trees.” says Kengo Kuma.

TPD (Tanjong Pagar Distripark), a burgeoning art area in Singapore, has recently seen tremendous growth and transformation. Formerly a seaport freight service industrial warehouse, the location has since attracted various art-related units. Additionally, in 2022, the Singapore Art Museum, recognized for its focus on contemporary art, chose TPD as its new home, elevating the area’s prominence both locally and internationally.
