The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) building located by the fringe of the Central Business District is a contemporary translation of the traditional 3-tiered unity of 'earth', 'people' and 'sky' elements in Chinese architecture. Its principal architect is DP Architects Pte Ltd.
SCCC will be celebrating its official opening with an 8-days Cultural Extravaganza from 20th of May. The extravaganza will include cultural workshops on puppetry, crosstalk, Chinese opera, and performances by local arts and culture groups.
The architectural expression of SCCC took its cues from the composition of elements and varied textures of a Chinese landscape painting. The play of composition, texture, decoration and symbolism in the different stacked zones softens the building expression. The façade is read as a progression of illustration from bottom to top, distinctive in their treatment, yet coherent as a statement.
SCCC is a non-profit organisation that aims to develop Singapore Chinese culture and promote racial harmony. They hope to reach out to Chinese and non-Chinese residents, new immigrants and the youths through a wide range of carefully planned activities.
The long-awaited S$110 million SCCC building on Straits Boulevard aims to preserve traditions, promote innovation in ideas, and enrich the multi-faceted nature of Chinese culture in Singapore.

Some of the offerings include lobster with clams and milk rice; carrot with orange, cacao and tonka bean; and a chocolate dessert with vanilla and passionfruit. He also uses Asian ingredients, such as tamarind, ginger, kaffir lime and lemongrass.
The chef says the dishes have been streamlined to focus on key ingredients, and laughs about writing a much shorter menu now compared with a long list of ingredients before.
