Singapore builds national service-themed gallery

Singapore’s scenic Marina Bay area will welcome a new landmark in 2027 – the NS Square, a space that takes in a national service-themed gallery, venues for large-scale events, and public recreational facilities.

The highlight is a gallery that showcases the history of the Singapore Armed Forces, the Singapore Police Force and Singapore Civil Defence Force national servicemen through multimedia platforms and exhibits.

Construction has begun for NS Square, replacing the Marina Bay floating platform, a venue on the bay that once hosted 11 National Day Parades.

Other facilities include a permanent stage deck and 30,000-seat grandstand; a water sports centre to support dragon boating, canoeing and kayaking; and a public waterfront promenade.

According to the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of National Development, the circular grandstand can be configured for different events such as concerts and sports competitions, or used for recreation and weekend markets.

Woha Architects leads the project as design consultant.
