The stadium that witnessed countless concerts, football matches, and our National Day Parades. bench creates unique furniture made from planks culled from the National Stadium to be placed back into the cityscape. bench allows memories of a national icon to be shaped by our local creative community; and for the public an opportunity to retain a keepsake of their memories through a meaningful public campaign.

Hans Tan is one of twenty-five designers/artist/architects comissioned to recapture and rethink this piece of memory through the design of an outdoor bench made from actual wooden planks salvaged from the stadium. The resulting work, Lumber, was exhibited at URA.
