Changi Airport invites public to share their vision for Project Jewel

SINGAPORE. Following the recent announcement that Project Jewel will be jointly developed by Changi Airport Group and CapitaMalls Asia, Jewel Changi Airport Devt, the property manager of Project Jewel, is now inviting the public to play an integral role in shaping the new retail-to-entertainment complex.

The development, which we first reported last August, is envisaged to be a “world class lifestyle destination” in Singapore.

Titled IMAGINE, the new platform will provide the public with the opportunity to share their vision for Project Jewel in the form of any two-dimensional medium (photographs, drawings and sketches). These submissions are expected to “spur inspiration from the community and draw strong ideas that can be considered for the development of Project Jewel”.

From 13 January to 31 March 2014, the public can submit their vision for Project Jewel via The public submissions may also be developed into art exhibits for display in Changi Airport, or produced into memorabilia as souvenirs for overseas visitors, subsequently.

The submissions will be curated into larger-than-life creative interpretations, and reproduced as art on Project Jewel’s 800m of hoarding during its construction.

Helming the creative process is Singaporean artist and illustrator, eeshaun. In the past eight years, eeshaun has been a strong contributor to the arts scene, where he has created artworks and illustrations for brands such as Adidas, Nike, Discovery Channel, Singapore Fashion Festival, Herman Miller and Lacoste Live!. Most recently, eeshaun was commissioned by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore to produce his largest public art installation, “˜Move!’, a series of three art murals at the Bishan Circle Line station.

Jewel Changi Airport Devt Pte Ltd CEO Philip Yim said: “There has been much excitement about Project Jewel, with many suggestions from the public sent to us for consideration since the first announcement at last year’s National Day Rally. We are very heartened by the strong support shown and we feel that it will be very apt to engage the community through IMAGINE, and invite them to share their vision for Project Jewel in a fun and creative way.

“We want to work together with Singaporeans and residents to shape Project Jewel into a world-class lifestyle destination that will add much excitement and create a new chapter in Singapore’s aviation history.”

IMAGINE is open to all residents of Singapore, aged 5 years and above. Two categories – Junior (5-12 years old) and Open (13 years and above) will see a total of 15 winners selected from the total pool of submissions, and they will stand to win prizes of up to S$1,000 (US$790) in Changi Vouchers.
