In celebration of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, Keppel Land, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth under its SG Celebration Fund, is holding a roving exhibition which showcases the transformation of the city’s landscape.
The exhibition, named ‘Singapore Unboxed’, will be held over a period of 50 days. Visitors can learn more about the stories behind the transformation of the areas where iconic developments such as Ocean Financial Centre, Bugis Junction, Keppel Bay and Marina Bay Financial Centre, developed by Keppel Land, as well as the National Library and Singapore Management University (SMU), stand today.
Mr Ang Wee Gee, CEO of Keppel Land, launched the exhibition at Ocean Financial Centre on 26 October 2015. He was joined by over 50 guests, including Professor Tan Chin Tiong, Founding Provost and Senior Advisor to the President at SMU, as well as senior management from Keppel Corporation and Keppel Land.
Mr Ang said, “With a legacy of over a hundred years, Keppel Land has grown to become a premier property company in Asia. Our developments have played their part in history and have their own stories to share.
“Keppel Land is honoured to have played a part in Singapore’s developmental history and we will continue to deliver on our ‘Thinking Unboxed’ brand promise to shape the best for future generations.”
Visitors to the exhibition can look forward to seeing original historical documents which have never before been publicly displayed, including title deeds and maps dating back to the 1800s. Keppel Land also rallied longtime staff and tenants at Keppel Land’s developments, as well as pioneers from Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society, who shared interesting anecdotes about olden-day Singapore in video footages displayed at the exhibition.
The public is invited to submit old photographs of Keppel Land’s developments and their surroundings on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SG50Keppelland. Photographs that receive the most “Likes” stand to receive attractive prizes, including a two-night stay at Sedona Hotel Yangon, Myanmar.
