Chris Lee, representing Serie + Multiply Architects:

“Our design for Sensoryscape seeks to strike a delicate balance between nature and structure, and openness and closure. The unique and delicate diagrid structures of the sensory gardens are calibrated to foster a deeper connection with the surrounding environment, and seamlessly blend the built structures with the island’s natural beauty. The lightness and leanness of the structures allow nature, views and light to permeate through whilst using the least amount of material necessary for construction.”

Keigo Miki, Project Manager, representing 1-10, Inc.:

“ImagiNite is an immersive offering that adds another dimension to the Sentosa Sensoryscape experience. While the digital light art projects are fun canvases for guests to interact and play with, the immersive augmented reality offerings take things up a notch, transporting guests to an ethereal realm of imagination. We are pleased to collaborate with SDC on this milestone project, and we invite guests from around the world to let their imagination soar at Sentosa Sensoryscape.”
