VivoCity is an iconic retail, entertainment & lifestyle destination that constantly surprises and stimulates visitors with its vibrant mix of retail and entertainment concepts. It features wide, open spaces for waterfront relaxation and entertainment, and a full calendar of exciting festivals and events that will draw both locals and foreign visitors.
VivoCity is designed by internationally acclaimed Japanese architect Toyo Ito, the man behind the renowned Sendai Mediatheque in Japan, known for his signature-style, which focuses on the utilisation of nature, climate and open spaces. VivoCity is his first major project in Asia outside of Japan, and is set apart from the traditional box format of many existing (and upcoming) retail developments in the region.
The design for VivoCity was inspired by the harbour front location of the development, which evokes images of waves in the sea. Each space leads intuitively into the next, creating an enjoyable shopping experience.
