EVENT TITLE: worKonference @SG2010
Asia Diversified l Modernity Modified l Possibilities Multiplied

Singapore is currently at the forefront of a fertile, transnational convergence of architects, urban designers, and global cultures emerging out of and working with Asia. At the same time, Singapore is home to many of the world’s largest and most diverse Asian heritage communities. The juxtaposition in the same urban environment of places with distinct cultural identities and of constructed, cosmopolitan cityscapes generates tensions between the built and the lived environments, between the design of iconic structures and the living vitality of public spaces.
