FARM was appointed the lead curator and designer of the Singapore Pavilion at the 11th Venice International Architecture Biennale 2008 after winning an open competition organised by DesignSingapore Council.

The pavilion is called SUPERGARDEN. SUPERGARDEN presents design culture in Singapore at a moment where architecture is actively redefining its aesthetic, professional and intellectual boundaries in relation to other design fields. The main focus of the Singapore Pavilion is housed within a room where a huge table stretches across its entire length and displays 22 different
objects each contributed by artists and designers.

Each object is accompanied by a series of conversations documenting an exchange of ideas between the contributor and other designers. These conversations emanate from specially constructed sound domes that hover above the audience, and create a symphonious banter of design ideas. Together, this enmeshed aural soundscape and visual landscape of objects create fresh and unseen connections between a new generation of Singaporean architects and designers.
