Ministry of Environment & Water Resources: Singapore GreenPlan 2012
This exhibition is part of the Singapore Green Plan 2012’s triennial review. It focuses on six key areas: Clean Air, Clean Water, Waste Management, Conserving Nature, Public Health, and International Environmental Relations. The Singapore Green Plan is Singapore’s environmental blueprint for the future. Its objective is to ensure that Singapore, through sound environmental management, achieves economic development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the needs of future generations. The first Singapore Green Plan was released in 1992 by the then Ministry of the Environment, now known as the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR). MEWR has since updated it and the current plan is called the Singapore Green Plan 2012 or, simply, SGP 2012. MEWR did a review of the SGP 2012 in 2005 and released a revised edition of the plan in 2006.
For the exhibition we were inspired by art installations that played with light and spaces, hence we fabricated cube structures that were stacked to form a 2.4 metre height block. The exhibition chronicles Singapore’s ten-year plan for achieving sustainable development. It describes the strategies and programmes that Singapore would adopt to maintain a quality living environment while pursuing economic prosperity. Through the exhibition design, the objective was to unite the accessibility of information, functionality and flexibility. And as a roving exhibition, the structures have travelled to four different venues within the span of four months – translating awareness into a tangible success for the public sector.
