The last I visited this site was was back in 2010, the last tour to visit the the Old Supreme Court before it closed for a facelift. Fast forward 5 years, I got to visit the new National Gallery Singapore in its opening week last November to appreciate architecture and a bit of Asian art.

Truth be told, I was concerned if this gallery will turn out to be just like any other typical modern building but I'm glad it wasn't, so heritage won't be lost even when urbanisation or modernity is prevalent. I've always had a penchant for an old-new architecture and interior, and the National Gallery is beautifully revamped and curated with both components. The quietness within the natural light filled space makes it a conducive place to slow down and appreciate its architectural beauty.

National Gallery Singapore is complimentary for all Singaporeans, so do visit if you haven't and there's great restaurants like Odette, Aura, Yan and Violet Oon's that are worth the visit! x
