Concept: The former stadium is one of the more iconic buildings in post-independent Singapore. In its heyday in the 1970s, the stadium evolved from a utilitarian structure to a symbol that captured the imagination of a nation. Over the years, the stadium meant different things to different people - the concerts, the parades. Its architecture will always be remembered for its iconic floodlights, distinctive rooflines, the red track and its weathered wooden galleries.
