Randy ChanRandy Chan (b.1970, Singapore) is one of Singapore’s leading young artist/architects specializing in the convergence between art and architecture.

 

Chan was featured in the ’20 under 40’ up and coming architects by the Urban Redevelopment Authority in 2004 and won the Gold Award in the 3rd SAI Façade Design Excellence Awards in 2006 for his work on the Singapore Pavilion at the World Exposition 2005 in Japan. He designed the Singapore Pavilion, “Supergarden” for the Venice Biennale in 2008.

 

Recently, he has collaborated with Grace Tan for a site-specific installation at the Substation as part of Singapore Art Museum’s FutureProof Exhibition 2012. Chan’s work is currently in Paris as part of the Nouvelle Vagues exhibition at Palais de Tokyo commissioned and curated by Singapore Art Museum. In his attempts to bridge art and architecture, Randy is no stranger to collaborations.

 

In his AiRx application he says,

This collaboration with Philippa presents an opportunity for dialogue between practitioners from different backgrounds and methodologies. It creates a situation where an architect-artist, whose day-to-day practice is in a dense city, shares a conversation with an artist who finds much kinship in the idea of land and landscape. Add to this unique partnership the heritage sites in question and the relationships inherent in these sites and this is a collaborative effort of the most exciting sort”
