The dome on the bottom left is a representation of Project Jewel. On the dome, sprouting rose vines bind the posh and shining Jeweled Airport. The Wifi symbol above the Airport, which planes are flying towards, indicate a travel destination hotspot. This represents Project Jewel as the binding source which makes the airport a hotspot destination for travelers and locals. The pink rose conveys beauty and grace which is how I imagine Project Jewel to be, ideally. The fragrance from the flowers which the person on the left is inhaling is the unique and posh aromatic smells which will attract even the visually handicapped. The clouds are a representation of dreams and the imagination.

The abstract graffiti-style artwork features famous iconic faces and class attractions in Singapore, including Project Jewel. Presented in various shades of colour, it signifies the vibrance of Singapore. Background lines, patterned vectors, colourful facets of a diamond and the diversity of the population signifies the hustle and bustle of the activities, and excited patrons who will visit Project Jewel. The butterflies, orchids and green leaves represent the fabulous and breathtaking centerpiece of a lush indoor garden - my aspiration and foundation for what the garden could be.

The glass border was inspired from a kaleidoscope, which shows a spectrum of magnificent colours, representing the different cultures in Singapore.
Charis Ng, 46
My art work is inspired by one of the world's most amazing and beautiful creatures, the monarch butterfly. A monarch butterfly's story is a tale of adaptation and celebration of life's hopes, dreams and joys. It mirrors the stunning success story of Singapore's Changi Airport as it transforms into a world-class air hub. Morph is a tribute to the amazing tenacity of our nation which embraces change, adapts and rises above challenges ‐ my vision for Project Jewel which will take Singapore's aviation to soaring heights.

A place where everyone can experience the wonders of the northern lights in the comforts of our tropical climate and create magical memories with loved ones. A place of fantasy and inspiration, where the young and old will be curious about this enigmatic side of nature's beauty. Most importantly, I want the elderly, who may never get the chance to travel across the world, to be able to witness this breathtaking phenomenon. By projecting the northern lights and stars onto the glass ceiling, visitors will get to experience an exotic marriage between a tropical garden and the serene night sky of the northern hemisphere. This lighting effect would ideally be powered by solar energy derived in the day (eco-friendly, creates clean-energy awareness). This 51x40.7cm painting (oil, acrylic and poster paint) features part of Jewel's night scene: rooftop dining area of a Spanish restaurant with an elderly couple, and a small family on a lower level viewing deck.

A lush tropical garden encased in the sprawling glass dome, every corner is a perfect photo opportunity. Ferns, orchids and flowering climbers adorn the walls, as water cascades down the vertical gardens. One can see planes flying overhead, hear the soothing sound of water, smell the sweet scent from the flowers and be touched by the ever reliable service at one of the busiest airports in the world.
It will be a paradise set within a sparkling architectural marvel. Changi Airport will not be a just a place of transit but a destination itself.

I think that when people arrive in Singapore, they want to be greeted with something unique and local. They would want to see the garden city and how Singapore manages to stay green amidst its fast modernisation.
Project Jewel will be the best way to show them what it's like to live in Singapore, and to be Singaporean.
I tried to incorporate all these aspects into my entry – the smiles, the lush greenery, vibrant colours, modernisation and of course, the fun!
I feel that Project Jewel will add a whole new level of colour, personality and shine to Singapore and I want to reflect that in my entry.

I imagine this to be a place where everyone can be happy and relax without the hustle and bustle of the city. There are plants and hills everywhere, and we are free to run and play without many boundaries. This way, everybody, including kids like me and even adults, will be able to enjoy the experience. We can also enjoy the beauty of nature without being disturbed by sights such as buildings and shops. I used water colour and markers to create this artwork. I drew patterned planes and filled the background with them. I drew many motifs from nature such as flowers, ferns and spirals.
