Identity in Generic, Singapore
The project reads Singapore through its generic architecture. The notion of Generic has become a qualifier and a new ground to measure the city of Singapore, in which allows the project to put forward a proposition to argue for its architectural value and more specifically how the identity could be formed through the generic of the HDB (Housing Development Board) of Singapore.
Home to 80% of its Population
The straight forward proliferation of the HDB compels the city to a language of generic that ultimately becomes the very substance of the HDB. With the perpetual change of Singapore, it remains as the only coherent and definable formal element of the city.
