Trick eye museum:
Visual spectacle and the first of its kind in celebrating culture and architecture

• Our team has vast experience in running events, with individuals specializing in different parts of event management.
• We have good relationships with sponsors/partners/vendors/suppliers.

• Our team has no experience in running such architecture/cultural events, because this event is the first of its kind.

• Rise in Cultural tourism in the recent years.
• Statistics show that attractions and entertainment is the highest earning sector. Tourists tend to spend more on attractions and entertainment.
• A successful event now would lead to a hallmark event, and perhaps even lead to making profit from ticket sales in future.

• There might be similar individual events celebrating Singapore’s culture and architecture separately.
• Sponsors and Partners not interested in collaborating.

ArchiCulture SG 2015
Architecture + Culture
Architecture is the very mirror of life. You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society.

– I. M. Pei (1989)
Architecture cannot be understood without some knowledge of the society it serves.

- Sir Hugh Maxwell Casson (1948)
