Architours 2019 | TOUR 4 | 29 SEPT | PM
Tour 4 kicks off with a new addition to a very familiar Singaporean hangout; with Design Orchard by WOHA. Go behind the scenes in what is a public space to hear the considerations from the designer's mouth; how it challenges conventional notions of space-making especially amidst the densely urban. The tour also includes a private house off Kansai Road and a preschool, with the former the tour's highlight. This features curves in bare formwork exquisitely crafted by the skilled builder, laid in dramatic and sensual fashion with a play of light, shadow, and nature.
