Gardens by The Bay Welcomes Orchid Extravaganza
26 July to 15 September 2019
The 2019 Orchid Extravaganza celebrates Singapore’s pop culture with a creative spin on familiar icons, as seen through the eye of multi-talented Singaporean singer-songwriter Dick Lee.
Melding floral artistry and pop art, the orchid display features landmarks and objects that have become part of local culture. From housing to recreation and food, these have been given a playful makeover under the creative direction of Dick Lee and designer Yang Derong, to reflect Singapore’s unique blend of tradition and modernity. They stand amidst a colourful landscape of over 15,000 orchids, comprising more than 80 varieties including heritage orchirds such as Aranthera Anne Black, Aranda Bertha Braga and Dendrobium Tay Swee Keng.
