The central business district of Singapore is home to the 55-meter, 230-ton Alkaff Bridge. Popularly called Singapore’s ArtBridge, the pedestrian bridge was designed to resemble a tongkang, a traditional boat common to the region.

Built in 1999, the bridge was painted in 2003-2004 by renowned Filipino artist Pacita Abad and a team of paintbrush-wielding rope specialists who transformed it into the vibrant landmark it is today.
