What’s an “AHU Room”?

The room that Ah Hu built.
The room that Ah Hu built.

Took this picture during my visit to the old city hall for the Singapore Biennale 2008. There were many “AHU Rooms” spotted in the building.

Pardon me for being a potential suakoo. Anyone can enlighten me what the heck is an AHU Room? A room for people named Ah Hu to enter only?

Hmm… or was this one of the installation artwork for the Biennale?
