Here’s how you can enjoy the iconic building before it closes in May
The Ministry of Law has announced that the Red Dot Traffic Building, the conserved heritage building that houses the Red Dot Design Museum, will be taken over by Maxwell Chambers in May.
The building will undergo restoration works, which will be completed in 2019. Built in 1928, the Red Dot Traffic Building used to house the Singapore Traffic Police Headquarters for more than 70 years. In 2005, it reopened with the museum as its main tenant.
Here are four events that will be happening in the building and the museum before the space closes.
1. MAAD Pyjamas
MAAD (Market of Artists and Designers) has been organised by the Red Dot Design Museum for one Friday night every month since July 2006. It’s a free creative marketplace for artists and art lovers to share their creations and appreciate innovations and design.
A main attraction is Portraits After Dark, where visitors can get their portrait drawn by members of the Organisation of Illustrators Council.
The next MAAD will be held on 13 Jan, 5pm-12am, and then again on 10 Feb and 10 Mar.
