The Former and the New

These are a few in-progress photographs of the National Design Centre, Singapore taken with an iPhone. It is an emblem of all things design for the city and its architectural approaches heavily described in the articles below. For a very brief period during its construction light penetrated into axial spaces, bearing the footprints of walls forming the intricate labyrinth of rooms that once existed in a cluster of 3 vacant buildings. Some of these building materials were kept underneath the new. Imprints of the past; perhaps allowing for the next regeneration agents to cease on such opportunities. These are the faces of the former while we made room for the new, the pure and definitely austere.
