Their very own biennale space

Edmund Ng and Peter Tay take the initiative to fly Singapore's flag at the Venice Architecture Biennale

After sitting out the last edition of the Venice Architecture Biennale, Singapore has made a return to the prestigious festival, though not with a country pavilion.

Unlike four previous editions when Singapore would join other countries in putting on an exhibition showcasing the city's architecture and design, two Singaporeans have set up their own installations.

Architect Edmund Ng of Suying Metropolitan Studio and celebrity interior designer Peter Tay are showing their past works at the Time Space Existence exhibition, which is part of the biennale.

Organised by Dutch non-profit group Global Art Affairs Foundation, the theme requires participants to look at the current state of architecture while exploring its relation to concepts such as time and space. The exhibition, which has brought together more than 100 architects from 40 countries, takes place at Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora. It started in June and will end on Nov 23.
