INDIGENOUS ART / SYDNEY 
'Fruit Bats' by Indigenous Australian artist Lin Onus is one of our favorite works currently on display in Sydney. Onus has taken two typically Australian things as his subject. His mixed-media sculpture depicts a flock of fibre-glass bats hanging on a Hills Hoist clothes line. You don’t get more Australian than that, and only a short walk from Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.

DESIGN / SINGAPORE
A landmark complex was the launch pad for Singapore’s aspiration for global leadership of the digital media economy. Fusionopolis, a short distance from Sofitel So Singapore, ‘fuses’ state of the art studios and business incubators with residential, recreational and retail facilities.  Our favorite part of the design? The Genexis Theatre. There you will find more than 400,000 timber beads alighted to form the theatre’s acoustic panels, and this contributed to the designer winning the President’s Design Award at the Singapore Design Week when completed in 2009. One of the many architecture treasures in and around magnifique Singapore. For a list of more, just ask our concierge team!
