    Locals call this place the "Durian". However from sky, we see more curves than thorns of the popular local fruit. Aerial photo taken by Yeo Kai Wen. Source: Straits Times

    Concert hall is the smaller of the two and is one of the most 'glam' venue in Singapore for a classical music performance. The best thing is that there is no phone reception inside!

    Durian look is actually triangulated glass & sunshade system. Tradeoff betw solar shading & panoramic views. Offers shadow & texture during day; & as glowing lanterns @ night. Source: DP Architects

    Live shows. Many of them! Quite new names but really good quality. Amazing promoters that spoil the audience and give a chance to young bands to prove themselves

    A nice arts center and a familiar place for meet-ups with friends for dining & a performance. I like the exhibitions & festivals as well! One horrible experience with a rude theatre usher though!
