Seen & Heard: Big White Rabbits Are Coming

••• From April 17 to April 30 at Brookfield Place: “Arts Brookfield presents a four-city national tour of Intrude, a highly acclaimed public art installation by Australian artist Amanda Parer. Intrude features monumental sculptural rabbits, each sewn in white nylon, inflated and internally lit.” There is no why; it just is.

••• Opening March 23 at the Skyscraper Museum: “Garden City | Mega City: Rethinking Cities for the Age of Global Warming. The exhibition features the work of WOHA—the Singapore practice begun in 1994 by architects Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell—an innovative firm well known in Southeast and South Asia where they have built major projects and won many key awards. WOHA designs tropical towers enveloped by nature and vertical villages with sky gardens, breezeways, and elevated parks. In their buildings in general—and especially a series of high-rise projects completed since 2010—WOHA has developed and tested a range of ideas for high-density, high-amenity architecture, both in Singapore and beyond, that proffers prototypes for public housing and commercial construction that can create highly social, sustainable, and garden-filled cities.” Below: WOHA’s Oasia Downtown in Singapore.
