singapore merlionFrom March, the role of the Merlion statue will change when Singapore celebrates its biennial.

Singapore Biennial


According to the Singapore tourist office, work for the project will start on February 7, and the "Merlion Hotel" will open from March 9 to May 15th for visitors who want to spend the night there and go to play casino.

Singapore Art Museum

The Singapore Art Museum, that helps organize the biennial, is responsible for this project and announced other useful information (such as the number of people who can sleep there at the same time) will be provided by the end of February. Ephemeral hotel facilities are increasingly common in art fairs and exhibitions. Among the latest was the trash hotel “Save the Beach” in Madrid and the hotel Null Stern in Switzerland, in the town of Teufen.
