Jewel Changi Airport by Safdie Architects
Location: Singapore, Republic of Singapore
Status: Completed

Jewel weaves together an experience of nature and the marketplace, dramatically asserting the idea of the airport as an uplifting and vibrant urban center, engaging travelers, visitors, and residents, and echoing Singapore’s reputation as ‘The City in the Garden.’ – Moshe Safdie 

Jewel Changi Airport, the newest development at Singapore’s award-winning Changi Airport, will commence a phased opening in 2019. Jewel Changi Airport combines an intense marketplace and a paradise garden to create a new center – “the heart and soul” of Changi Airport. Once open, Jewel will establish a new paradigm for community-centric airport design, extending the airport’s principal function as a transit hub to create an interactive civic plaza and marketplace, combining landside airport operations with expansive indoor gardens and waterfall leisure facilities, retail, restaurants, and a hotel as well as other spaces for community activities. Linked to the city’s public transportation grid and with open access to Terminal 1, and to Terminal 2 and 3 via pedestrian bridges, Jewel engages both in-transit passengers as well as the public of Singapore. Entirely publicly accessible, the 134,000-square-meter (144,000 sq.ft.) glass-enclosed toroidal building asserts a new model for airports as a destination for community activity, entertainment, and shopping.

IZIPIZI

IZIPIZI it’s everyday glasses that put a smile on your face colorful collections, no limit to your taste classics reinvented, designed to fit for reading and for screens for the sun and just for fun all made easy, for you, me, everybody it’s IZIPIZI.

IZIPIZI is the brainchild of three long-time friends: Charles Brun, Xavier Aguera and Quentin Couturier. The three millennials grew up in Lyon, where they attended high school together. Having gone on to complete business school, they all shared a common ambition: to launch a joint business venture. It was 2010 and they were 24 years old. The inspiration came in the form of their long-sighted parents’ repeated refrain: “Can I borrow your eyes?” thus were born their glasses on a stick, inspired by the upright counter pens found in banks. Like magnifying glasses, the creation was an easy-to-use, everyday object with a minimalist design. It was an immediate success. They dubbed the product “See Up” while their first clients were banks – Société Générale in particular – more and more private customers began asking for a home-use version of the product.
