Singapore Biennale 2011 Open House Party @ Old Kallang Airport

You've heard of Old Airport Road.
So have you wondered where the Old Airport was?

It is actually the Old Kallang Airport, used as the headquarters for the People’s Association from the 1960s until 2009.

Kallang Airport was Singapore’s first civil airport, opening in 1937. Built on reclaimed swampland along the Kallang River, it also included an anchorage for seaplanes (wow!), and was described at the time as the finest airport in the British Empire (double wow!).
The old runway was transformed into Old Airport Road.
