When Singapore played host to the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010, CDL worked in collaboration with Urban Redevelopment Authority and the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee, to commission commemorative Olympic Games sculptures to adorn the scenic Marina Bay waterfront promenade.
A World United is one of two commemorative sculptures that resulted from the CDL Singapore Sculpture Award for the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010. The sculpture illustrates the unifying spirit of peace and sport through a stylised and dynamic depiction of sportsmen engaging in the 26 sports of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games.
The two finished sculptures were publicly unveiled by then-Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, prior to the start of the Youth Olympic Games.
