Do Not Design has published a new book called Architecture and the Architect: Image-making in Singapore

The objective of the new publication is to look at place, memory and nostalgia through architecture in the fast-changing built landscape of Singapore. It also questions how both designers and users of the architecture collectively decide on the landscape that following generations will inherit.

Mixing images and anecdotes, the book celebrates Singapore while asking readers to take an unprejudiced look at the city. Featuring forty buildings in a diversity of styles and through different decades, eight new interviews with respected architects are also included. Anecdotes from residents, tenants, shopkeepers and security officers have been inserted throughout the pages of the publication as well, to complete this collective gathering of voices.

From shopping malls to institutional spaces and public housing housing projects, the publication hopes to act as a reminder that the choices made today will impact on the citizens of tomorro

This project is supported and partially funded by the iRememberSG Fund of the Singapore Memory Project.
