There are no tigers in sight. Instead, you can relax in the pavilion's hanging garden under the shade of the palm trees. But before you do, you should learn about the many cultures that have shaped Singapore at the interactive exhibition "New Asia Singapore".

Chinese, Malay and Indian influences and the 35-year history of Singapore's transition from a British colony to an independent nation are presented.

Future visions and development plans are presented in computer animations.

Learn about the country's cultural and historical traditions.

The pavilion, built by PICO Art International, is based on a steel frame on which a reconstruction of a historical facade has been constructed. Approximately 70% of the construction materials can be recycled or reused once the pavilion is dismantled.
