PROJECT 37 by Chow Chee Yong


Project 37 was an exhibition by photographer Chow Chee Yong that charts the demolition process of Singapore’s National Stadium.

The photographer’s four-month documentation captures the last moments of the National Stadium as a tribute to the outdoor arena that had hosted innumerable National Day parades, worldwide sporting events and countless performances by local and international artistes. The National Stadium once united thousands of people in boisterous spirits and the photographic works of remembrance are at once an archive of a nation’s history and each individual’s story.
