In celebration of Singapore’s Jubilee Anniversary, one of Singapore’s most iconic waterfront landmarks, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, has lined up a nine-day tribute to the nation’s 50th birthday with a spectacular projection mapping that will see the hotel’s magnificent façade brought to life through the use of latest 3D animation and projection techniques.
Inspired by the hotel’s illustrious 128-year history as a city landmark and the pivotal role the Fullerton Building played in the history of Singapore, the 8-minute long music and video extravaganza, entitled “A Celebration of Our Heritage”, will offer glimpses of Singapore over the past 50 years, showcasing the various key moments that have taken place at the Fullerton Square, including scenes from the numerous election campaign rallies that took place during Singapore’s development years.
In a significant nod to The Fullerton Hotel’s previous role as Singapore’s General Post Office from 1928 to 1996, much of the visual masterpiece will incorporate colourful stamps that were circulated in Singapore during the last 50 years.
People watching the video projection will get a chance to see these stamps ‘come to life’ in large 3D images that will move and dance their way across the hotel’s façade, as the latter is transformed into a stunning theatrical backdrop.
Many of these facets will pay tribute to Singapore’s shared heritage – celebrating the nation’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural identity. Additionally, viewers can also expect to be taken on a journey where they can see the transformation of Singapore from a new nation into the garden city and global hub that it is today.
During the Jubilee Weekend, on 7th and 8th August, from 7.30pm, The Fullerton Hotel will also distribute complimentary kachang putih (roasted or sweetened peanuts or beans traditionally sold in paper cones) and potong ice cream (rectangular popsicles in local flavours such as red bean, yam and durian) at One Fullerton to add to the sense of nostalgia.
