Singapore Speaks Monochrome

Singapore is a work in progress, and the physical landscape never fails to remind you of this.

There could be cranes in the sky in built-up areas, and there could be views like the one below.

Occasionally, it gets a bit postmodern, like this:

_MG_0783 640

The inside wants to be outside.

Our desires/appetites/wants/needs are very well structured and catered to.

Everything is for sale.

Cities are places where appetites are met.

Appetites transcend national boundaries …

Pig organ soup, anyone? It’s actually quite yummy.

Waiting.

_MG_9487 (2) 640

Doing.

_MG_9578 (2) 640

Working.

_MG_9606 640

Cooking.

Buildings are structures of desires.

_MG_9746 640

There’s ambition in the architecture.

_MG_9492 (2) 640

These are homely desires.

_MG_9763 640

There’s an architecture of modernity.

_MG_9483 (2) 640

An architecture of nationhood.

_MG_9574 640

And space in which we simply do nothing at all.

Thanks for reading!
