Ocean Financial Centre, developed by Keppel Land, was the backdrop for Catalonia’s 229-man human tower – or castell – during its opening performance for Catalan Week on 19 October 2016.

The human tower is a Catalan tradition that has its origins in 1712 and has been declared Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO. This is the first time Singapore has hosted Catalonia’s human tower.

CEO of Keppel REIT, Ms Ng Hsueh Ling, said, “We are glad for the opportunity to host the castell’s performance at Ocean Financial Centre, which adds to the colour and vibrancy of the business and financial district. It is a celebration of culture, strength and performing arts.”

Keppel Land is the sponsor of Keppel REIT.
