Before It All Goes

In conjunction with Darren Soh’s solo exhibition at Objectifs about the disappearance of our post-independence architecture, I co-produced a 20-minute documentary to go deeper into the tensions behind these buildings’ gradual disappearances, beyond Darren Soh’s photos and captions. We talk to residents of a Tanglin Halt HDB flat, a homeowner of Pearl Bank Apartments condominium, and commercial tenants of Golden Mile Tower.

Together with the exhibition and the book, the project was shortlisted for the President’s Design Award Singapore 2020.
