    Hi Haw Kiat, it was a really close finish to the race! I actually think with more time, the results could have been different. anyways - thanks so much for being such a strong contender for this challenge. I'm sure our sponsor will want to feature all the designs and not just the winners because it represents a whole cross section of Singapore Heritage that is dear to many locals as well as friends around the region. Cheers!

About Design

This table lamp consists of two sides, one depicting the Tiong Bahru Market and the other, the Queenstown public library, two of my favourite places to visit. It is designed to fit LED light unit from IKEA. When illuminated from below and viewed from the library side, the hollow wall of the Queenstown library facade creates an interesting pattern. When viewed from the market side, the thin window walls gives a semi-transparent glow.

Tiong Bahru Market was originally known as Seng Poh Market (named for the road on which it stood), the market was a solution to the semi-legal street hawker problem that plagued Singapore's streets at the time. Since 1950, the market stood for 50 years before the government completed the upgrading in 2001.

The Queenstown Community Library located Margaret Drive was opened in 1970. It was the first full-time Branch Library, built by the National Library in its plan to decentralise home reading services. Building construction began in November 1968 and completed on 26 December 1969.

I suggest to print it in 3 parts consisting of the base, Library facade and market facade using Ultimaker or Makerbot with PLA material.
