By mounting a hard cover on to a soft cover this book was able to stay in budget and within the desired design vision. A bit of unconventional thinking was required early in the process and they fully took advantage of it by introducing a couple of new printing methods on the cover that make the book feel extra special.

Project Description

An intimate project, this publication arises out of an anxiety towards the fast-changing built landscape of Singapore. Its objective is to look at place, memory and nostalgia through architecture, while attempting to understand the images of Singapore in the collective minds. How do we, as agents and recipients of the built environment, come together to decide the landscape that generations after our own would inherit?

We have gone about assembling individual memories of architects and users who are both, in their own ways, image-makers of the city. The result is a collage of both the physical and the sensory coming together to inform something about a spirit of intersecting times.

In its most celebrative tone, the images and anecdotes in this book recognize what we have. Yet, this is not meant as an evasion of criticality. Instead, we encourage readers to take an unprejudiced look at this city we call Singapore, before searching for their own meaning of place. We see this publication as a tribute, as well as a reminder of the choices we make to strengthen our national identity. With accompany republished essays from William Lim and Alfred Wong and 8 interviews of architects, architecture photographers and 40 featured buildings from offices, shopping malls to public and private housing and institutions and with up to 20 anecdotes from residents, tenants to security guards and workers.

Production Lesson(s)

We didn't have the budget for a hard cover book and binding, yet we wanted to make a book that the cover doesn't feel like it's soft. Explored a few methods and one of them is to mount a board on the front and back of the covers.”
