Inspired by the psychological privacy one enjoys within a swing, An Enclosure for a Swing lends a shape to this intimate space. The spatial expansion and contraction formed by the undulating steel ribbons trace out this movement to create a spatial cavity – a space that only Nature can enter. Seated within the sculpture, one can share a rare intimacy with Nature.

A winning work of the 2009 4th CDL Singapore Sculpture Award, the iconic sculpture was designed as a landmark for Bishan Park, taking into account its elevated position and view corridors, and to reflect the unique identity of the site and its relationship to the natural and design elements of its surroundings.
