The National Gallery of Singapore is worth a day's worth of buildings.
Lines Light and Shadow, silently marching towards the centuries in the dimension of time
National Gallery of Singapore, it should be said that it is the most story-like building in Singapore.
It was converted from the former High Court of Singapore and the Singapore Government Building. One of the two buildings was built in 1926 and the other in 1936.
At that time, Singapore was still in the British colonial period, so it retains the European feel, and the big Roman column is known, including bricks and tiles, wooden ceiling chandeliers and handrails, all at the latitude of time. He walked silently for a hundred years.
The National Gallery of Singapore, which was opened to the public in October 2015, is not only rich in exhibits, but also has an intrinsic interior design that perfectly explains geometric aesthetics. The sun shines through the transparent ceiling into the pavilion. The shape of the tree shrub adds a lot of artistic atmosphere and literary atmosphere. The wooden floor and white wall are intertwined with light and shadow. The whole museum itself is a light and shadow feast. .
In the entire hall, the most photographed is the white dome. It is the essence of the entire museum building. The dome is shrouded in a transparent, highly ergonomic zenith. The sun shines through the cracks on a sunny day, and the light and shadow on the white dome is particularly beautiful.
The staircase of the black and white checkerboard is simple and generous, and it is very mirrored. In addition to the dome, arches are also a frequent element in the museum. The arches in the National Gallery of Singapore are pure white in uniform with the dome, clean and elegant, with black and white plaid tiles, a harmonious simplicity. Taking pictures in such an art museum, it can be a fashion blockbuster in minutes~
