Positioned as a global city at the hub of South East Asia, Singapore has a thoroughly modern sensibility mediated by an inherited culture and sense of place. This new global consciousness is reflected in its architecture, which demonstrates a seamless marriage of vernacular and modernist forms.
Malaysian architecture retains a greater interest in vernacular forms, but the nation’s strong economic growth has seen a new ambition to re-cast the urban landscape, in order to accommodate the ‘brave new world’ of an affluent technocratic society.
25 remarkable houses and townhouse developments by a dynamic new generation of architects are displayed in this book.
Architects featured include SCDA, WOHA, Bedmar & Shi, CSYA, Kevin Low, K2LD, Seksan, WOW Architects, Guz Wilkinson, W Architects, and John Heah.
