Organised by the Singapore Institute of Architects in conjuction with the local wood working industry, JTC and NUS, this ideas competition was entitled "Ecological Design in the Tropics 2000" (EDITT 2000). In approaching this design, "A Giant Tree" was the metaphor used in this ideas competition. The form of the building bears the conceptual resemblance and function of the leaves of a tree, busily producing its work and totally self contained in its function. This design entry was awarded second place in the competition.
