Pedestrian art on Queen Street

The New Paper | Friday, Aug 22, 2014

SINGAPORE - Pedestrians on Queen Street can now enjoy an interactive 3-D "jigsaw puzzle" outside the Waterloo Centre.

They can assemble three sets of large foam pieces designed to look like old playgrounds structures- Toa Payoh's dragon, Tampines' watermelon and Pasir Ris' elephant.

The play space will be open at the new Waterloo Centre plaza - named Artsplace - from Friday until the end of the month.

It marks the end of the Urban Redevelopment Authority's street enhancement works along Queen Street.

The works were carried out over a 650m stretch, widening pavements by up to 5m and removing kerbside carparks to make room for wider sidewalks and safer road crossings.

Ten benches outside the Singapore Art Museum will also be painted by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts students.
