“Wak Hai Cheng Bio: A Dialogue between Architecture and History” documents the full-scale restoration of Singapore’s oldest Teochew temple, Wak Hai Cheng Bio (also known as Yueh Hai Ching Temple), carried out between 2010 to 2014. This firsthand account of the restoration offers a view of the temple’s history through close examination of its physical fabric. It is further illustrated with a discourse on nine architectural trades, materials and/or crafts: tile, timber, plaster, brick, stone, relief fresco, clay ornament, ceramic ornament and paint.
