Finding the Unique in the Generic City

After exhibiting in two locations in London, Uniquely Singapore – Distinctively London?, a project comparing the cities of Singapore and London to find out what’s unique about each from its everyday spaces, will officially open in Singapore this Saturday. This is a fringe event in this year’s ArchiFest and it is held at Illuma shopping mall. As one of the six Singapore correspondents who worked on this project, I got to study eating spaces in these two cities with my London collaborator Lingxiu. If you’re keen to come for the opening reception at 6pm, please RSVP at

There will also be a Really AR? 5 presentation that evening organised by re:act, and Reclaim Land has been invited to share our work together with speakers like architect William Lim. Do come by to support!
