The 2018 Innovation by Design Awards honor the designers and businesses solving the problems of today and tomorrow. Jewel Changi Airport is a Finalist Honoree as part of the The Spaces, Place, and Cities category.
Reconfiguring our relationship with public spaces, Jewel Changi Airport presents a new design philosophy that bridges public and private space. As the focal point of a major international transportation hub, the project infuses the traditional shopping mall with a monumental garden designed to serve as a public amenity for travelers and residents alike. Jewel Changi Airport is not a garden-themed mall. It is a marketplace and a public space garden, positioned side by side—a new type of building block that enriches and enlivens the city.
