In this issue
As we mark our 20th anniversary this year, we realised we have grown up with an entire generation of architects, serving as companions to them through their university days, those early years as young practitioners and later, ascension to senior positions or even the setup of their own firms.
Over the past two decades, we have featured their projects, supporting them in their contribution to Singapore’s built environment, while also subliminally giving definition to the country’s architecture. It is therefore apt that this become the focus of a feature, where we trace its evolution in the last 20 years.
Yet, even as we look back, we must look forward. We have singled out eight architects to keep our eyes on, making up the next generation who will shape Singapore’s buildscape.
Elsewhere in Issue 120 (yes, we have also published 120 issues to date), read about the project featured on the cover, Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore, a hotel and clubhouse conceptualised by Mercurio Design Lab. This remarkable piece of architecture is distinctive for its swooping roof, which reflects the silhouette of the golf course it is sited by, giving it that all-important contextuality.
Worth highlighting too is Gibert&Tan;’s ECT Headquarters in Klang, Malaysia. We have identified how it is the latest in a slew of award-winning industrial architecture projects in the country that eschew boring and boxy for creativity and consideration.
We like to think it is our ability to spot trends like this (among other reasons) that keep our readers loyal to us since their days as an architecture student. Thank you so much and we look forward to remaining lifelong friends.
We hope these examples inspire you to introduce more community-oriented spaces into your next project.
