SUTD Architecture and Sustainable Design (ASD) pillar was invited to represent Singapore at the Cities Exhibition, one of the anchor exhibitions during the inaugural Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017. Curated by Asst. Prof. Keng Hua CHONG and co-curated by Adjunct Asst. Prof. Calvin CHUA, the Singapore Pavilion addresses the theme of the exhibition “Commoning Cities”, by identifying 4 main challenges or opportunities in Singapore – demographic transformation, information revolution, resource redistribution, and production reform. Entitled “White Space”, the pavilion showcases 8 strategies developed by ASD faculty in response to these opportunities, culminating in various architectural and urban designs in selected urban voids (or white spaces) as part of their on-going teaching and research. With these experimental interventions, the ASD faculty team envisions Singapore to become a prototype for the world.
