No More Free Space

Set against the backdrop of the red dot’s compact urban environment, the Singapore Pavilion from this year’s International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia is all about questioning whether there’s still free space in Singapore. It features 12 projects that showcase the resourcefulness of architects, their inspirations and realisation of ideas, while borrowing natural resources such as light, air, greenery and water. Visitors to the exhibition will find themselves enveloped in an Instagram-worthy acrylic cloud and immersed in a multisensory projection of lights, sounds, images and even scents.

No More Free Space runs from 18 May to 30 June at the National Design Centre

Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura Singapore edition

Gucci Osteria’s five-week pop-up in Singapore is currently running until 2 June at the Arts House. For the uninitiated, Gucci Osteria is the brainchild of luxury fashion house Gucci and world-renowned chef Massimo Bottura. The 60-seater Singapore edition features walls charmingly kitted out with the iconic red Gucci Herbarium motif wallpaper that was exclusively flown in from Florence. The stage that’s built within the Arts House is strikingly clad in a shade of green; the same exact colour that can be found in Gucci Osteria in Florence.

The Uni Crab Tostada is a lip-smacking start to our gustatory journey here. Resting beneath a crisp corn tortilla cracker is a serving of sweet crab salad bathed in a briny Hokkaido uni sauce; the cracker is adorned with pickled radish, avocado, chipotle mayonnaise and coriander and hibiscus powder. The Crunchy Part of the Lasagna, however, failed to meet our expectations. The ragù and béchamel sauce combination could have been served in a bigger portion to allow for a more balanced bite when indulged together with the pasta sheet.

We cleansed our palate with the Charley Marley, a heart-warming ode to chef Bottura’s second son, Charlie, who loves chocolate. The decadent finger sandwich is made up of nectarous layers of hazelnut biscuit (which has ‘Gucci’ engraved on it), hazelnut praline, dark chocolate ganache and lastly, kaya cream, which added the perfect touch of local flavour to the dessert.

Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura Singapore edition will take place from 1 May until 2 June

Wonderland – An Interactive Exhibition

Revolving around Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, this exhibition takes many a twist and turn – enhanced by the newly-created, “enchanted”– ‘Lost Map of Wonderland’.
