Terence Tang (Singapore)
The benches that surrounded the pitch at the old National Stadium will surely be remembered for the times when a nation sat together and sang in one voice to celebrate the nation's heroes.
This bench was created simply by arranging planks in a perfect circle. This arrangement encourages families, friends and strangers to sit together in a circle.
Alas, the image of a perfect circle would seem apt in representing the journey that the National Stadium has taken. Torn down after more than three decades to make way for a new sports hub, the old stadium lives on in spirit through the reuse of planks from its old benches in the making of this project. Through this, the old National Stadium has come full circle.
