Supreme Court, Singapore
» The appearance of the new building has been thoroughly thought out in order to show the idea of transparency in the judicial system.
» That’s why the lining is of translucent Portuguese marble and the inner entrance, stairs and elevator shafts are constructed mainly of glass.
» Today the building houses 12 civil, 8 criminal, and 3 appellate courts.
» The Court of Appeal is located on the eighth floor of the building apparently executed in form of a disk. This architectural detail isn’t accidental. The disc towering over the building is a modern interpretation of the dome that decorates the Old Supreme Court, but also symbolizes the impartiality of the judiciary.
Victoria Theatre, Singapore
» The Theatre consists of two buildings constructed in Victorian style 40 years one after another.
» These buildings are connected to each other with the clock tower; they are considered the most striking examples of colonial architecture in Singapore.
» In 1992, both buildings were awarded the status of a national monument to the country.
» Currently the theater and concert hall regularly host classical music concerts, dramatic and dance performances.
