Art and Lifestyle at VivoCity

VivoCity is the biggest shopping mall in Singapore and I happen to live nearby.  I am crashing at my Aunt's Boss' place in Sentosa Cove.  Sentosa Cove, so posh and exclusive,  deserves a different post but now I would like to write about VivoCity, the closest shopping mall to where I live.

VivoCity gives its customers and visitors a diverse and radiant mix of retail, food and beverage,and entertainment in over one million square feet of space.  It's name is from the word "vivacity" which is a lifestyle that is modern, stimulating and accessible.

The retail shops are a mix of local and international brands which is complimented with a recreational and entertainment attractions which becomes an escape for relaxation and enjoyment.


VivoCity is also a gateway to Sentosa via the Sentosa Express monorail which you could find at Level 3 or you could stroll along the Sentosa Boardwalk, Southeast Asia's first garden themed panoramic boardwalk.

You could see Sentosa from the Boardwalk.

What I liked about VivoCity is the outdoor Sky Park where kids and kids at heart could splash out in a pool to cool the nearing summer heat. Just bring along extra clothes as your kids will have a grand time in this large pool.

Likewise, VivoCity has a collection of international art scattered around.  Here are just a few:

Flower Tree by Choi Jeong-Hwa from Korea

Above is named Flower Tree, which is a six meter tall flower tree in all blooms amongst real trees situated at the Promenade.  It symbolizes affluence, courage and youth.

Snowman by Inges Idee from Germany

The Snowman, with a height of 13 meters, sits at the Promenade, towering over second-story terrace to peer over the Sky Park.

THERE by Henk Visch from The Netherlands

THERE, a gymnast which swings from a horizontal bar perched more than 6 meters above the rooftop pool, symbolizes man's optimism and his belief that he can find everything he is looking for.

Vivo Punch by Michael Cheung from Hong Kong

Vivo Punch are human like figures in various poses is a picture of how we must see the bright side of life and we must never fail to explore.  It also depicts fun, inquisitive and innocence which is very childlike. Above is just one of the many human like figures scattered around the open area.

There are 3 other artworks in VivoCity and hopefully I get to update this blog once I had the chance to find them!
