When Singapore played host to the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010, CDL worked in collaboration with Urban Redevelopment Authority and the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee, to commission commemorative Olympic Games sculptures to adorn the scenic Marina Bay waterfront promenade.
Breathe is one of two commemorative sculptures that resulted from the CDL Singapore Sculpture Award for the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010. It symbolises the peace and environmental consciousness shared by these nations and their united spirit for a truly sustainable global environment. The two finished sculptures were publicly unveiled by then-Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, prior to the start of the Youth Olympic Games.
