The President*s Design Award Tours is a new signature P*DA series that will be launched during Singapore Design Week (SDW) 2022. Centred around architecture and place-making projects, two special P*DA Tours titled 'Design that Cares' and 'The Hunt for the Green Treasure' will provide the public with opportunities to experience first-hand some of Singapore's most outstanding and impactful designs through immersive tours and self-guided journeys that exemplify innovation, inclusivity and sustainability. The special SDW edition will feature exclusive experiences that are not normally available to the public.
'Design that Cares' by Monster Day Tours is a tour designed to bring participants off the beaten path to discover spaces that exemplify equity, diversity and inclusion. Designed to showcase the value of inclusive design, the tour visits Enabling Village, The Pinnacle@Duxton and home-grown brand Bynd Artisan where participants will enjoy behind-the-scene experiences, workshops, stories of local designers and gain a deeper appreciation of inclusive spaces and objects they encounter in their everyday lives.
'The Hunt for the Green Treasure' by Tribe Tours is a guided game tour that challenges participants to decipher a series of puzzles issued by a famous architect to uncover a mysterious green treasure. Seekers will visit Singapore's award-winning green sustainable architecture, specially Skyville@Dawson, Oasia Hotel Downtown and Gardens by the Bay, to learn more about their sustainable design features and hear about the challenges P*DA recipients faced.
