Located at Gardens by the Bay East, the Founders’ Memorial is envisioned to be an integrated building and garden space, with exhibition galleries and art installations. When complete, it will feature stories on values exemplified by the late Lee Kuan Yew and Singapore’s first generation of leaders, and other key personalities who have played important roles in the Singapore story.

To turn the vision of the Founders' Memorial into a reality, an international architectural design competition was launched earlier this year to gather the best ideas. Five designs were subsequently shortlisted, and these will be publicly showcased for the first time this November/December, as part of a travelling exhibition which will rove to venues island-wide.

We now invite you to be part of the making of the Memorial. Come view the five shortlisted designs at the exhibition and choose your favourite – one of these designs will become the eventual Founders’ Memorial. The winner will be announced in 2020, so stay tuned!
