a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Description of the completed garden:
The design concept aims to create an oasis of calm amidst the towering urban center of Singapore. The
ground was covered with Japanese white gravel to provide a defined border from the hustle and bustle of the
outside world. At the center are carefully chosen Japanese stones and a traditional stone basin. The sound
of the little stream and water-filled bamboo tube blurs city noise, inviting a slower and quieter life.
*Using local materials is optional, too.
