This wild architecture and landscape design is a tad unusual at the heart of straight-and-narrow Singapore. Bill was inspired by the Beatles album, Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – his favorite growing up – and found Lennon’s mind expanding creativity ever so useful when dreaming up this funky spot.
Another influence was Keith Haring, the American artist and social activist known for his pop art and distinct graffiti style. The combination makes for an experience that is utterly trippy, and all the more so when experienced to the sound of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
Keith Haring is one of my top ten favorite artists of all time. I love his language of markings. As a design exercise, I love to take artists’ work and expand on it.
