‘Now Is Not the Time’ is an immersive art exhibition that pays homage to Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew on the occasion of his 100th birthday, in collaboration with Refinery Media, the talented artist Daniel Arsham, animation studio X3D, and fellow contributors Tay Chee Wei, Lasalle Film School, and Nanyang Polytechnic School of Design.

Brewin Design Office is honored to have contributed to this historically significant exhibition, designing “Building Blocks”, a warren of fabric-walled rooms of varying heights and square footage that evokes the emotional life of a city, its challenges and its triumphs.

Building Blocks is a physical environment paving a journey for the visitor, providing an experience that relies on spatial, volumetric, and perspectival design. An abstract metaphor of the urban development that Singapore has gone through over the past 5 decades, we created a series of translucent rooms through the use of gradated tonal fabrics and artificial lighting that allows the audience to journey through variations of scales and transparencies. The installation transcends the boundaries of both temporality and spatiality, serving as a physical rendition of a journey through time and history.
