The National Design Centre (NDC) is the nexus for all things design. This is where designers and businesses congregate to exchange ideas, conduct business, use its facilities and obtain assistance from the national agency for design, the DesignSingapore Council. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, it is well placed to invite the public to learn about design through its exhibitions and programmes.

  • We are almost what chance to the National Design Center walking through the area and went to visit him. It is very interesting to see this building and its contents, what refers to the role played by urban, architectural, industrial, landscape and design fashion in the rapid development of the country of Singapore city and its amazing economic success. Definitely highly recommended

  • I visited the Centre to attend a conference welcome reception. The canapés were very nice and served by attentive and professional staff. However, the acoustics do not lend themselves to large crowds ...  more »
  • As a creative concept for the exhibition venue By walking into the exhibition free of charge Every floor has displays of creative & fashion for people like the design very seriously.

  • Aside from classes, actually really nice exhibit about the history of design in Singapore. Also nice little shops sprinkled throughout to look for design items and clothing. Nice Japanese light food restaurant as well. Watch the event calendar for interesting talks to attend
  • Convenient spot to get to, being located right by NAFA. They house many good art events from time to time, so make sure you check them out to see what's on show then. Restaurants and shops also come and go, so you get to try new stuff each time if you come here once in a while. Offices and retail shops are upstairs and you should get access to some of the more unique local brands doing all sorts of design related things.
  • One of the most interesting places for those who love to create and have a fluid imagination.
  • A nexus for all things design in Singapore. Tons of local designs to see in a pop-up concept! There is a wide variety of products that are uniquely curated by local designers and many are even available for sale. Also, there is an exhibition on the history of designs in Singapore, including the details on the iconic Singapore Airlines' sarong kebaya, which is easily one of the most recognisable female uniforms in the airline industry. The National Design Centre also houses several design labs, such as the Materials Design Labs and the Prototyping Lab.
  • Nice open space. Bright and airy. A wonderful place to visit for good displays for design and creative works.
