The Poh Ming Tse Chinese Temple in Singapore, with its three-story-high concave glass facade, elegantly expresses spirituality in the context of an ultra-modern city. Architect Tan Peng Geok's design for the 50-pane facade features a powerful and intricate, yet subtle, bamboo image incorporating 28,656 words, each about 40mm high. He decided on laminated glass panes with a frosted look to hide the metal beams and add an air of mystery. Dip-Tech digital in-glass printing was the only choice for this project, winning out over screen printing on cost, accuracy and logistics. With Dip-Tech's software handling the tiling, the tone-on-tone images on all the panes flow together seamlessly. Moreover, the system embedded numbers in the corners of the panes, simplifying installation.
