Singapore Design Week 2019






Transform and enliven the urban spaces in the Bras Basah.Bugis (BBB) district with public artworks as design interventions!


Together with the National Heritage Board (NHB), the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) is co-launching an Open Call to invite artists and designers to submit concepts for installation of public artworks as design interventions within the Queen Street area as part of Singapore Design Week (SDW) 2019. The proposed installation shall be clearly visible to the public and aspire to be iconic to the street and the precinct. In addition to providing visitors with delightful encounters to experience design, the installation should positively shape perception of the area as the arts, heritage and design district in Singapore.


Design proposals received will be assessed by a panel of judges and up to 3 winning designs will be selected to be presented at SDW in March 2019, with a reimbursement amount of up to SGD$20,000 for each selected proposal.

The 5th edition of the Singapore Design Week (SDW) ran from 5 to 18 March 2018. With over 200,000 visitors and 115 successful events, we couldn't have done it without our sponsors, programme partners, overseas friends and all the participants. We salute you! Every year we are heartened by the support we receive and it encourages us to push harder, to do more to put us on the map as a global city of Design. Singapore Design Week 2019 will be back from 4-17 March 2019. Stay tuned to our social media pages, subscribe to our newsletter or watch this space for updates.

The annual SDW brings together a collection of local and international design activities in Singapore. Organised by the DesignSingapore Council, the SDW is open to the design community, businesses, design students, public sector officers and the general public.

As one of Asia’s premier design festivals, SDW champions design thought leadership by bringing the design, business, and public policy worlds together to answer how they can intersect better to bring about needed innovation and solutions to build businesses, engage communities and enrich people’s lives. It is a hub where the best design talents and businesses from Singapore and Asia converge to be showcased to the world; and a platform where Singaporeans and visitors can experience the value of design through delightful activities.

Through SDW, the Council hopes to enhance the synergy among our design partners, and in turn boost Singapore’s profile and attractiveness as a global city for design.
