Brief

Singapore remains extremely vulnerable to internal terrorist attacks even with our strong external defence. Our only guard against internal threats are through our own vigilance and awareness - but youths remain unaware and complacent towards the threat of terror; having grown up in an extremely safe environment.

The Concept

Complacency is the backdoor to terrorism - take responsibility. Safehaven attempts to represent the lurking dangers within Singapore’s society with a blanket fort.

Safehaven represents our society as what youths deem to be the most comfortable and safest – built to be perfect in their minds. The catch: blanket forts are built of makeshift items and is vulnerable, just like how our society can fall if we are not vigilant enough.
